Post Malone recently went on The Howard Stern Show, and discussed everything from his face tats, his new album, his new baby, his relationship with his girlfriend, and everything in between.
Of course, the most intriguing part of the interview for us country music fans, was when he teased the idea of putting together a country album.
“To be honest, there’s nothing stopping me from taking a camera or setting up in my studio in Utah and just recording a country album on YouTube. I’m allowed to do that, I’m a human being.”
This is MASSIVE news, knowing that he has a desire to make a country album, considering his kickass performances of Sturgill Simpson’s “You Can Have the Crown” and Brad Paisley’s “I’m Gonna Miss Her” for Matthew McConaughey’s “We’re Texas” virtual benefit concert.
Not to mention, all of the other examplesof him being a country music fan…
However, Posty got real personal in the interview as well, and opened up about his struggles with alcoholism, and how he knew he had to cut back on the hard stuff.
His latest album, Twelve Carat Toothache, details his struggles, and although he admitted to Stern that he’s not yet sober, he’s also aware that he needed to make a change:
“It got to a terrible point… It was to a really, really rough point, and I didn’t get up off the floor for weeks. And that’s where a lot of the inspiration for the album comes. I never want to bring people down, I just want to express how I feel.
Screwdrivers, it was vodka, it was bodying fifths, and it was trying to hang in there and talking to people who weren’t fucking there. I never got help with it, I just have super beautiful people around me, and I met a really beautiful person (his fiancée) that made me feel like a human being again.
Often times, whenever you’re looking for help, or subconsciously even seeking help, it’s never, an ultimatum is always heartbreaking, it’s just like ‘Oh, fuck. What do I do?’
It’s the guidance out of the dark, into the light… It’s you are you, and I love you so much, and I can see what you can be. And I know who you can be, and I know you’re not like that. And yeah she saved my fucking life, it’s pretty epic.”
All in all, it appears that Posty has a great support system around him with his girlfriend, along with the added responsibility that comes with being a father.
