More details have surfaced about Drake's Nothing Was the Same, this time courtesy of Rolling Stone magazine. NahRight.com posted snippets from the magazine's "Fall Music Preview" for which Drake and Noah "40" Shebib speak about two more tracks, "Tuscan Leather" and "Paris Morton Music II."

"Tuscan Leather" is the album's intro and borrows from a Whitney Houston song. "It's a three-staged record ― one sample flipped three different ways," 40 said, "with a verse over each beat."

Meanwhile, "Paris Morton Music II" ― a followup to Rick Ross' "Aston Martin Music" ― is pegged as the best example of Drake's "nothing was the same" theme. "That track excites me from a rap standpoint, just getting off bars and different flows," Drizzy explained adding that J. Cole was simlarly excited about the record. “I played it for J. Cole, on some rap buddy-buddy sh-t, and he was like, 'D--n!'"

Drake has released more than a handful of songs thus far, the most recent being "Hold On We're Going Home," which debuted at No. 21 on the Billboard singles charts. And, he revealed the album cover last week, causing a rush of Internet memes.

Nothing Was the Same is due out Sept. 24.
