Octavian teases album release date with maths question

09 April 2019, 11:24 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

BBC Sound Of 2019 winner Octavian has teased the release date of his forthcoming debut album with a maths question.

Octavian's debut album will follow on from last year's Spaceman mixtape, and his "BET" single.

The rapper is hardly giving away the release date of his record with ease though, as he captioned his album teaser with a maths question for followers to work out, "ALBUM ON THE WAY. 5x6-17 + 890 - 60% + 45 = Date of Album."

People are posting a mixture of answers, but those who reached the final number of 406.2 think it could mean 26 April when read backwards.

Octavian will play London's Field Day, Parklife, and many other festivals this summer. Find out more.
