Post Malone Hints At Country Album
Post Malone seems to have changed style.
The “Cooped Up” singer has released his new album, Twelve Carat Toothache, but may be changing genres on Post Malone ‘s next project. In an interview with Howard Stern on SiriusXM, Post admits that he was playing with the idea of recording a country album.
“To be honest, there’s nothing stopping me from getting or installing a camera in my studio in Utah and recording a country album just to put on YouTube,” Malone said. “I’m allowed to do that, I’m a human being.”
But his demanding schedule, including the upcoming “Twelve Carat Tour,” didn’t allow him enough time to record.
“I divide my time between so many different things because I have to happily perform and show love to my fans… and then I have to happily write music and do rhythms on my own, and I have to happily take care of my family,” he said.So, there’s a lot of time, and it’s about finding that space to set aside that time.”
However, if time permits, it can eventually do so. “If I give myself another year, maybe I’ll make a country album without a fuzz.”
Post, who grew up in Grapevine, Texas, was introduced to country music through his mother. “My love for country music came from my mother,” he told VICE in a 2017 interview. “Whenever I was a little kid, a little niño, my mom always played country in the car, so I guess it was a look at where it came from.”
His favorite country artists include Hank Williams Sr., Willie Nelson, Tim McGraw, Brad Paisley and Johnny Cash. “Johnny Cash impressed me a lot. He’s a great storyteller,” Post said, noting the similarities between hip-hop and country. “Country and rap are actually the same thing, just presented differently … You’re just showing who you are and just what you’re about.”
