Toronto rapper JUGGER has announced that his sophomore album Puppet Master will arrive on October 27 via Red Bull Records / Wonderchild. 

The 13-track album marks JUGGER's Red Bull and Wonderchild debut since he became the first artist to officially sign on with the WondaGurl label back in 2021. 

He unveiled Puppet Master today with a quick sci-fi trailer produced by Laurelle Sorokolit and set to the soundtrack of the album's newest track "Ventriloquist." 

The teaser certainly did its job in announcing his return to music, with fans expressing their excitement for the project in the comments under the video. 

"Real ones know how long we been waiting for this comeback," wrote one.

Another commenter echoed that: "Been waiting for the comeback!! World needs you Jug!"

He teased the project with a pair of singles in "Stunt Devil" and "CMFTZN" this summer, before sharing "Ventriloquist" alongside the album announcement today. 

"'Ventriloquist' is a personal look inside what my journey has been like throughout this project. The opening line, 'puppet master, cut the strings,' depicts the separation from the powers that be," he said of the song in a press release.

"The harmonious intro drifts in like a calm before the storm, anticipating the rebel boy's return. This is the beginning of a new era, we are in control now!"

Watch the teaser and listen to "Ventriloquist" below.
