After the scorching success of ‘Wow’, ‘Goodbye,” and his Billboard Hot 100 chart-topper ‘Sunflower,’ genre-bending Texan rapper Post Malone is primed and ready to unleash his third album, Hollywood’s Bleeding, which is due out on Friday, 6 September.
“Sept 6 :)),” Malone succinctly tweeted early Monday morning, 26 August on Twitter. His manager, Dre London, doubled down on the news, and revealed the album title in an Instagram post.
“It’s been hard trying to keep this info away from the [world] especially when it’s gonna be the best birthday present ever,” he exclaimed. “Let’s all celebrate together- Album Is Called ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’ & is [fire].”
Earlier this month, Malone tantalized fans with a preview of his new song ‘Circles’ during his Bud Light Dive Bar concert in NYC. He spoke highly of the record, dubbing it a “f_king fat groove.” During the show, he also teased that his album was set to drop September, but remained tight-lipped when it came to a release date.
