A giant, golden Travis Scott head is sailing around Sydney on a barge right now to signal one thing: the Texan rapper’s album has arrived.

To celebrate the upcoming release of Scott’s long-awaited third LP ASTROWORLD, major global cities are being treated to sightings of the head (an exact replica of the head on the album cover) in London, Paris and now Sydney.

The Sydney barge set sail this morning from Rozelle; it floated past the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and into Circular Quay. Media were invited along to take snaps from Sydney Opera House.

In London, the head sailed up River Thames in London  for a release day boat party for key influencers and fans.
