Post Malone’s life has changed a lot since the release of his most recent studio album, Hollywood’s Bleeding. The recording artist, who was born in Texas and raised in Los Angeles, relocated to Utah to begin a new life as a mountain man, surrendering the drama of Hollywood for gorgeous landscapes and peace and quiet.
Twelve Carat Toothache, Post Malone’s forthcoming album, has officially been announced. Post Malone and his manager, Dre London, announced a slew of fresh projects for the superstar during the first quarantine in 2020, but they never materialized.
London recently chastised Malone’s record label, Republic Records, for reportedly delaying the release of his upcoming album despite the fact that the song has been completed. Now that things appear to have been worked out between the two parties, Malone’s next studio album, Twelve Carat Toothache, is set to be released.
Trying to shove 20 to 25 songs, it doesn’t work. Talking to the label [it’s like], ‘Oh, if you have less songs, you’re not going to stream as much,’ but the whole thing is that you don’t want to compromise your art and your gut vibe on anything. I’ve made a lot of compromises, especially musically, but now I don’t feel like I want to anymore. I don’t need a No. 1; that doesn’t matter to me no more, and at a point, it did.
He said about the new album, rebuking the industry’s obsession with streaming numbers. The title of the album was revealed in a new Billboard cover story, in which Malone discusses his intention to no longer aspire for #1 albums or songs, his set-up in Utah, and the imminent release.
