" was made available Friday on iTunes, Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify and GooglePlay. None of the songs has a title, just what seem to be dates, ranging from 2013 to 2016.

Top Dawg Entertainment, the independent hip-hop label Lamar is signed to, said the collection "features studio versions of the untitled songs" that Lamar performed on "The Colbert Report," "The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon" and last month's Grammy Awards.

Many of the songs have a spacy, groovy feel and sound highly produced, including the standout funky "untitled 08 09.06.2014." But "untitled 07 2014-2016" is a meandering, eight-minute song that ends with artists collaborating in a studio, complete with jokes and laughing.

The collection, which totals 34 minutes of music, was publicized around midnight from Lamar's Twitter account.

Lamar won best rap album for "To Pimp a Butterfly" as well as rap performance, rap song, rap/sung performance and music video. Along with his wins, Lamar also had a show-stopping moment when he took the stage to perform "The Blacker the Berry" and "Alright."

Lamar went three years before releasing his impressive sophomore effort in "To Pimp a Butterfly" last year.
