It has been just about 12 years since the release of Dr Dre’s last studio album, 2001 which was released in 1999. After many years of anticipation waiting a new release from the doctor, it looks like it’s going to happen, as a press release has hit the net announcing that Detox will finally see the light in February 2011.

Although it has been announced multiple times over the years that Detox would be releasing, this time it seems more believable, as over the past week 2 leaks, Kush, and I Need A Doctor from the album have hit the net.

Read the full press release from NME below.
Dr. Dre’s long-awaited ‘Detox’ album will finally be released in February 2011.

The follow-up to ‘2001’, which was released in 1999, will feature guest collaborations with Eminem, Snoop Dogg, Akon, Jay-Z, La Roux and The Game.

The news follows Dre’s announcement earlier this week (November 17) that the record’s first official single will be ‘Kush’, featuring Snoop Dogg and Akon.

‘Kush’ is available to hear online now and will be available as an official download from Sunday (21). The cover art is pictured.

‘Detox’ has been in the works since 2003. A specific release date in February has yet to be confirmed.
