Post Malone Confirms First Full-Length Country Album Is Coming This Year

It’s coming this year.

Of course, Post Malone just dropped his first-ever original country song, a collaboration with Morgan Wallen called “I Had Some Help,” which has already become a fan-favorite and well on its way to becoming a massive crossover hit.

And of course, it’s been heavily speculated that Posty is working on his own, full-length country album, which he has hinted at himself and pretty much confirmed before in random, one-off interviews.

But, with things like this, you never really know for sure, and it was still uncertain if Post was just going to be dropping some singles here and there, or if he was ready to fully jump into the country genre with a real deal album. He has also teased a song with Luke Combs, so like I said, I was almost wondering if he had just come into town and write a few singles.

I mean, albums and things of that nature are never really 100% a go until a label says so, if you’re an artist signed to a major label, so that was really the big missing piece in terms of solidifying the rumors and speculation.

Well, we now have official confirmation from Big Loud, record label home to Morgan Wallen, that Posty IS, for certain, dropping his “first-ever full-length country album this year.” In a press release shared today about the aforementioned new song with Morgan, “I Had Some Help,” they also shared this:

“The single, which will be featured on Post’s first-ever full-length country album this year, comes on the heels of Post and Wallen’s landmark sets at Stagecoach Festival 2024 in Indio, Calif.”

There ya have it… this new song is actually the lead single for much bigger project.

I don’t think it’s a huge shock to most fans following along with what he’s been up to for the last several months, and Post is also slated to make his debut on the ACM Awards stage next week, so maybe we’ll get some sort of official album announcement then, who knows.

We’ve already seen photos of Post in the studio writing with Morgan and Luke, along with hitmaker Ernest, so don’t be surprised to see those names, and likely plenty more you recognize, on the tracklist eventually, too. Parker McCollum might even have an album cut on there…

It’s also part of a growing trend we’ve seen in 2024 where hugely successful Top 40 pop artists, like Post and Beyoncé, dabble in country and jump in on what is clearly the most popular genre right now. It’s obviously thanks in part to the mainstream popularity artists like Morgan, as well as Zach Bryan, and even Lainey Wilson and Jelly Roll to a lesser extent, who are getting crossover, mainstream recognition in a big way.

You don’t need me to tell you that country is having a huge moment, which will continue to have a big spotlight on it as Pots gears up to release his first country album. And yes, I’m still holding out hope for a Tyler Childers or Sturgill and Posty collab… a girl can dream.
