6lack Shares ‘East Atlanta Love Letter’ Cover Art and Release Date
6lack season approaches. Following the release of two singles, the crooner today (Aug. 29) shared on social media the cover art and a Sept. 14 release date for his forthcoming album East Atlanta Love Letter.
The artwork features 6lack standing in front of a microphone set up in a kitchen with his one-year-old daughter strapped to his chest. Based on his Instagram Story, it appears he also mailed the image to fans in the form of a postcard with personalized questions printed on the back.
The drop date will correspond nicely with 6lack's recently announced world tour. The "Prblms" singer earlier this month announced a 34-city run set to launch on Oct. 5 in Johannesburg, South Africa. The U.S. leg kicks off on Nov. 2 in Memphis, Tenn. They, Boogie, Tierra Whack and Summer Walker are scheduled to open select shows.
6lack has let loose two singles this summer, although neither is confirmed to be featured on the album. "Switch" dropped in June and received a music video in July, followed this month by the release of "Nonchalant" and its own accompanying visual.
This week he also stopped by Sway's Universe and freestyled over Nineteen85's beat for Travis Scott's Astroworld cut "Coffee Bean," over which he joked that he's "all over the place like a Nicki M. rollout."
The new project will be 6lack's first full-length since his 2016 debut album Free 6lack. Check out the East Atlanta Love Letter cover art below.
