T-Pain hasn’t released a solo album since 2011’s rEVOLVEr, but it looks like the drought is coming to an end as he set to release new album titled Oblivion.
American rapper and singer, T.Pain vows to release his forthcoming fifth album OBLiViON on Nov. 17. The effort has been preceded by a series of loose singles, including “Goal Line” with Blac Youngsta and “F.B.G.M.” with Young M.A.
To announce the release date, T-Pain shared a conversation he recently had on an airplane. “Dude, you were going pretty hard the whole flight,” a passenger reportedly told him. “Do you mind if I ask, who are you listening to?” The Auto-Tune King’s response? “My new album.”
It is unclear if OBLiViON is meant to replace the long-awaited and previously-announced Stoicville: The Phoenix, or if it’s simply another warm-up before the highly-anticipated project.
In August, T-Pain revealed that OBLiViON will also be his final album on RCA. “A lot of it’s produced by Dre Moon, he’s a new producer,” Pain told XXL at the time. “It was supposed to be a collab mixtape between him and I but then once some of the songs started getting to the label, the label was like, ‘Oh, this is a fucking album!’ And this would be my last album on the label. So, for them to accept this I’m like, oh, alright I’m free after this.”
