While many of us slept, J.Cole came through in the middle of the night with a new body of work, Truly Yours, and an accompanying letter to explain the nature of the project, plus updating fans on what’s next. First single from the new album this week? Sounds like a plan, Cole.
His words below Dream Villain:
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.
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
