Earlier this week, SZA teased fans with a tweet stating she was thinking about dropping five unreleased songs in celebration of her debut album’s fifth anniversary (June 9).

Keeping her promise, SZA returns with the deluxe edition of her 2017 album Ctrl with five new tracks on the album’s anniversary. The 5 tracks include the previously released SoundCloud record, “2AM” which is a remix of PARTYNEXTDOOR‘s “Come and See Me,” the Tyler, The Creator-produced “Jodie,” “Miles” and an alternate version of “Love Galore.” The project also featured the never-before-heard track, “Perculator.”
All five tracks were recorded between 2014 and 2017.
