American rapper, singer, and songwriter Austin Richard Post known professionally as Post Malone has released his new single, “I Cannot Be (A Sadder Song)”, featuring rapper Gunna.
The new song is off Post Malone’s fourth studio album Twelve Carat Toothache released on June 3, 2022, through Mercury Records and Republic Records.
On April 24, 2020, Malone announced that a new album is in progress during a live stream performance.
On April 23, 2021, his manager, Dre London, shared that he and Malone had agreed that the latter would release two projects in 2021, which however, did not happen.
On January 10, 2022, London revealed that Twelve Carat Toothache had been completed and was ready to be released, but said that Republic Records and its parent label, Universal Music Group, had been delaying its release.
On January 26, 2022, Malone was interviewed by Billboard. He felt that the songs on the album “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”.
American record producer Louis Bell, a close friend and frequent collaborator of Malone, felt that it blends “molten lava and fire” and “cyan blues and whites”. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Malone was unable to go on tour, which did not really motivate him to make as much music. The album will contain 14 songs, and will run for about 45 minutes. It is Malone’s shortest album to date.
Known for his introspective songwriting and variegated vocal styles, Malone has gained acclaim for blending genres and subgenres of pop, hip hop, R&B, and trap. His stage name was derived from inputting his birth name into a rap name generator.
