Post Malone nods to his real name (Austin Post) on his upcoming album, Austin, which will be released on July 28 by Mercury/Republic. The first single, “Mourning,” arrives Friday (May 19), and the project will be supported with a summer North American tour kicking off July 8 outside Indianapolis.
“It’s been some of the funnest music, some of the most challenging and rewarding music for me, at least — trying to really push myself and really do some cool stuff,” Malone said of Austin on Instagram yesterday. “I played guitar on every song on the record, and it was a really, really fun experience. I’m super, super excited to share it with you.”
Austin is led by the single “Chemical,” which was released last month. The track was co-produced by Malone, Andrew Watt, and Louis Bell, and co-written with those collaborators as well as Billy Walsh.
Meanwhile, tickets for the If Y’All Weren’t Here, I’d Be Crying tour go on sale beginning tomorrow. “I love y’all so very much and I’m so excited to get out and do some more shows for y’all. Help me put a baby through college and come on out. Some cool new production, new songs, and a very very handsome man up on stage. Sending love to you and yours,” Malone says.
Austin is the follow-up to last year’s Twelve Carat Toothache, which debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.
