Post Malone has revealed the name and release date for his sixth full-length album – find out more below.

Today (June 19), the rapper – real name Austin Richard Post – took to social media to announce the album via a picture of a billboard in Nashville. The billboard revealed the album’s name to be ‘F-1 Trillion’, while the rapper confirmed on Instagram that it’s due to arrive on August 16. You can pre-save the album now.

While the album’s track listing has yet to be revealed, the album is believed to be country-leaning, seeing as Posty has been releasing a string of country singles and collaborations with country singers in the past handful of months.

In April, Post Malone performed a Hank Williams cover during a surprise gig in Nashville. Later that month, he played an entire set of classic country cover songs at Stagecoach Festival. The set included a guest showing from Brad Paisley, with whom he duetted on Paisley’s ‘I’m Gonna Miss Her’, as well as Vince Gill’s ‘One More Last Chance’ and Alan Jackson’s ‘Chattahoochee’.

In May, he released his first single since 2023’s ‘Austin’, titled ‘I Had Some Help’ with Morgan Wallen. Later that month, he debuted a new song ‘Never Love You Again’ while performing at the Country Music Awards. Later this week (June 21), the singer will release a new single, ‘Pour Me A Drink’, with Blake Shelton.

Back in 2022, Malone told Howard Stern that he had been considering the shift in style. “To be honest, there’s nothing stopping me from taking a camera or setting up in my studio in Utah and just recording a country album and putting it on fucking YouTube,” he said. In 2021, he also performed two country covers of songs by Brad Paisley and Sturgill Simpson for the We’re Texas relief fundraiser livestream.

Malone’s fifth album ‘Austin’ scored a four-star review from NME upon its release last year, with Erica Campbell writing: “The shift from trap beats and hip-hop delivery to purer pop suits Malone well, proving that slowing down can be a creative advantage, especially when you’re heading in the right direction.”
