After teasing it earlier in the day, Travis Scott has premiered a new track, reportedly titled ‘Escape Plan’, during his performance at Rolling Loud Miami over the weekend.
The new song marks Scott’s first original track for the year, following on from the remix of his 2016 song ‘Goosebumps’ by Hvme back in January. His last original release was ‘Franchise’ with Young Thug and M.I.A..
Scott opened his Rolling Loud appearance with the relatively brief cut, performing from atop a raised structure. At a different point Scott performed another unreleased track a capella. Watch both below:

Scott had teased ‘Escape Plan’ on Twitter earlier that day, sharing a minute-long clip of what appears to be an excerpt of a new music video.
“Hmm some one ask me how I’m starting I said this is how. Who can remember this by tonight,” Scott captioned the post.

“I never tell people this, and I’m probably going to keep it a secret still, but I’m working with some new people and I’m just trying to expand the sound,” Scott said.
“I’ve been making beats again, rapping on my own beats, just putting everything together and trying to grow it really. That’s been one of the most fun things about working on this album. I’m evolving, collaborating with new people, delivering a whole new sound, a whole new range.”
