Post Malone has revealed “Mourning,” the second preview of his upcoming album, Austin. Listen below.
Built around a two-chord progression, “Mourning” sees Posty lyrically grappling with a struggle to face reality. As a booming kick holds down the beat, he calls out “quote-unquote friends,” describes intoxicatedly stumbling around to The Commodores, and “mourns” the death of his buzz as the morning sun brings an end to the sweet escapism of night. It’s catchy, melancholic, and quintessentially Post Malone.
Austin is out on July 28th via Mercury Records/Republic Records, and pre-orders are ongoing. The follow-up to last year’s Twelve Carat Toothache includes the previous single, “Chemical.”
In July, Post Malone is set to hit cities across North America on his “If Y’all Weren’t Here, I’d Be Crying” tour, including St. Louis, Toronto, and San Diego. Tickets are available at StubHub, where orders are 100% guaranteed through StubHub’s FanProtect program. StubHub is a secondary market ticketing platform, and prices may be higher or lower than face value, depending on demand.
