Post Malone has shared some news on his upcoming studio album, a follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2019 Hollywood’s Bleeding. The next project is in the works.
When speaking to the Wall Street Journal Magazine at his home in Park City, Utah., the rapper explained that “this has been a perfect time to make music, and to write songs about what’s going on currently.” Posty recognizes that the world is going through some major turmoil, and hopes that his Hollywood’s Bleeding followup “will give people hope and hopefully uplift people’s spirits.”
“Honestly, for a songwriter to be in the house all day is a blessing and a curse. In the darkest of times I’m just trying to make something beautiful out of it,” he said, making the most out of the time he has on his hands to think about how he can improve himself and help out more. He recently did a Nirvana tribute Livestream show, which raised over $2.7 million USD for the UN Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, and aims to translate that empathy into his music,
“I want to make an album that will uplift and show that people are not alone in their times of loneliness and worry and that at the end of the day we all just need to show love to everyone on the planet and figure things out. So we’re working pretty hard, and I think we’re making some incredible stuff.”
