Yelawolf is only about six months removed from his sophomore album. But the Alabama native is already starting the journey for his next body of work. His last LP Love Story sold pretty well, especially considering it was his first album in three years. This time it seems Shady/Interscope won't let him sit on the shelf that long.
The album, revealed through an Instagram post, will be titled Trial By Fire. In the caption, which you can read below, he states that he's pretty much just starting the album. A release date or even time frame is unlikely any time soon.
It's been a crazy week. So much energy around me at all times. I've found peace and quite for most of my life at grave yards .. My Maw Maw used to take me .. We would just walk around and read stones ... I write a lot of records here .. Today I wrote a record for @leebrice and I here .. Called "Violin" ... We're supposed to be in the studio this evening .. Time to push all aside and get these ideas recorded .. Songs are like a passing speck of dust in the wind ... If you don't grab it and contain it .. It'll be gone forever. With all my growth .. I can say returning to my roots has been the greatest blessing. Sharing that with what hip hop brought to my life ... I'm forever grateful .. " Trial By Fire " will be the title for my next album ... Sharing this with you all today ... Right now .... Cause who knows really ... But I'm mentally ready to begin the next album ... And the journey starts today. @shadyrecords INTERSCOPE #slumerican @fefedobsonofficial @kleversworld @bonesowens @spidysmith @jdotjones @rosenberg
