Drake's 'More Life' project has been slated for a 2017 release.

The 30-year-old rapper took to Instagram on Sunday (11.12.16) to share an update with his followers, telling them he was back on his feet after an ''ankle injury'' - which led him to postpone three of his dates on his 'Summer Sixteen Tour' - and that his new project, will be coming out soon.

Alongside a video of himself playing basketball, the 'Hotline Bling' hitmaker wrote: ''Finally got to play today after recovering from the ankle injury. Happy to be back at 100 and ready for More Buckets More Shows and More Life 2017 (sic)''

The 'One Dance' singer's manager Oliver El-Khatib also made an announcement on Drake's Apple Music radio show 'OVO Sound', revealing the release date to be early in the new year.

Originally the album - which will feature the songs 'Two Birds One Stone', 'Fake Love', and 'Sneakin' alongside a remix to rapper Dave's 'Wanna Know' - was slated for release in December, after the rapper previewed the tracks on the station.

He said at the time: ''I'm off mixtapes, you know? I wanna do a playlist, I wanna give you a collection of songs that become the soundtrack to your life. So this is more like the playlist. Like I said, dropping in December, all original music from me, but you may hear some tunes from the family on there.''

And the star also said he wouldn't just drop ''one song'' as he likes to keep his listeners ''happy''.

He added: ''I just wanna celebrate life. 'More Life', that's what we live by. That's something that we don't take for granted. So today, like I said you're getting some new music. I'm not going to tell you how many songs it is, I'm just going to let you hear it. I know most people think I'm dropping like one song, but you know me, I like to make all the listeners and all the fans happy.''
