Post Malone Is Finally Releasing His First Country Album – Here’s What We Know So Far

After years of covering country songs and collaborating with country artists, Post Malone announced in late 2023 that he was working on his first country album. He released his first country song, a cover of Joe Diffie’s “Pickup Man,” in November 2023.

Malone performed “Pickup Man” with Morgan Wallen and HARDY at the 2023 CMA Awards that same month.

Then, in April 2024, Malone started teasing another duet with Wallen. Called “I Had Some Help,” they performed the song live for the first time at the Stagecoach music festival.

“I Had Some Help” was officially released on May 10. It is one of the biggest hits of the summer and has held on to the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for five weeks and counting.

Malone shared another new song, “Never Love You Again,” when he performed during the ACM Awards in May. He kept the surprises coming at CMA Fest in June when he joined Blake Shelton to sing their new duet, “Pour Me a Drink.”

It seems safe to assume that all of these songs will be featured on Malone’s first country album…but when is it coming out?

When Is Post Malone Releasing His New Album?

Malone finally answered that question in a post he made on social media on Tuesday (June 18).

The singer posted a photo of the famous Nashville Sign, which displayed the cover art for his first country album. In the caption, Malone revealed that the album’s title is F-1 Trillion.

Malone also confirmed the release date…Friday, August 16th.
