SEPT. 5TH is the debut album of mysterious R&B group, dvsn.
Originally slated for April 1, 2016, Noah “40” Shebib announced on OVO Sound Episode 18 that the album would be moved up to be released on March 27, 2016 at Midnight. However, it was only available in North America, and only on Apple Music. The album was distributed worldwide on April 1, 2016.
The album garnered decent hype leading up to the release, thanks in part to the first two singles—“The Line” and “With Me”—which were released on September 5, 2015. The album’s title refers to the date of their first two singles.
dvsn released their next single, “Too Deep,” on December 2, 2015. The fourth single, “Hallucinations,” was released on Christmas Day, 2015.
On February 29, 2016, 40 announced on his Instagram that dvsn had signed to OVO, furthering the hype dvsn had created. The album was released under both OVO and Warner Bros.
