Post Malone’s New Album ‘Coming Next Month’

Is Posty about to deliver his new album? Apparently so.

There’s no secret about the title or even the length of Post Malone’s forthcoming studio LP, twelve carat toothache, which will close-in at around 45 minutes, the hip-hop star’s shortest album to date.

The release date, however, has stayed a tightly kept secret. The secret is (mostly) out, with Posty’s co-manager Dre London announced it’ll drop in May.

London slipped in the big news by way of a motivational Instagram post, captioning a pickup game of tennis. “Post Malone album coming next month!,” he writes.

Previously, Dre London had taken to social media to call out Republic Records for allegedly delaying Malone’s follow-up to 2019’s Hollywood’s Bleeding.

“Our sync & energy always on a Insane level!! Album has been done!! We Ready!!” London said on Instagram, accompanied by a series of pictures of him and Malone laughing together.
It’s time for the label to get the business right before we drop BIG Album! Hit them up! We been ready like u are! #DreVision #2022 It’s Time!!!”

London previously discussed Malone’s upcoming releases last April. “This that smile while on FaceTime with @postmalone agreeing that the world deserves 2 Posty projects out this year!” London wrote back then. “Discussing dates to drop the 1st one sooner than u think!

No full releases were ultimately forthcoming from the rapper in 2021 but Malone did feature on a few notable tracks throughout the year. He covered Hootie & the Blowfish’s ‘Only Wanna Be with You’ to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise.

‘Motley Crew’ was dropped last July as the lead single from his forthcoming fourth album, his first solo single from an album in almost two years. Malone’s last release was his collaboration with The Weeknd, ‘One Right Now’, which reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in November.

When twelve carat toothache finally arrives, it will have a lot to do to match the success of Hollywood’s Bleeding. Featuring great guests such as Future, SZA, Young Thug and more. The album topped the charts in the U.S., U.K., and Australia.

Twelve carat toothache is led by the single “One Right Now,” which arrived last November and features an assist from Republic labelmate The Weeknd.

It’s the followup to 2019’s Hollywood’s Bleeding, one of Malone’s two Billboard 200 No. 1 albums. The hip-hop star also has four Hot 100 No. 1 hits, three of which placed on Billboard’s Greatest of All Time Hot 100 Songs ranking: “Circles,” “Sunflower” and “Rockstar” (featuring 21 Savage).

Speaking with Billboard from his sprawling estate in Utah, Post says the new songs “speak more to how I’m feeling at the moment: the ups and downs and the disarray and the bipolar aspect of being an artist in the mainstream.”

Posty will get several chances to road test his new music in the months ahead. He’s booked to play the Miami Grand Prix on May 6, and Chicago’s Summer Smash Festival on June 17.
