Two years after Post Malone put out his chart-topping album “Hollywood’s Bleeding”, Malone revealed to Billbord that his next album will be titled “Twelve Carat Toothache.”
As of now, an official release date hasn’t been revealed — however, Malone did note that this will be his shortest album to date, clocking in at 45 minutes. Said Post: “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.”
Earlier this month, Malone’s manager Dre London wrote on Instagram that Post’s label, Republic, was holding up the album — possibly over the album’s length. Post explained: “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.”
