truly yours

Well, this is a welcome surprise. To hold us over until his delayed sophomore album, Born Sinner, arrives, J. Cole bring us five brand new tracks in the form of this unannounced new project, Truly Yours. As the man himself explains, he’s recorded at least four albums’ worth of material for his upcoming LP, and here is just a “raw” sample of what unfortunately won’t make the final cut. We’re not complaining, though! Grab the goodies below and stay tuned for the new Born Sinner single dropping later this week.

It’s time.

I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have. Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .

Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..

The wait is over.

Truly Yours,

Born Sinner

PS – 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
