Lil Nas X, the chart-topping artist behind hits like “Old Town Road” and “Montero (Call Me By Your Name),” has given fans a hint about when they can expect his next album. Responding to a fan’s question on Twitter, the musician stated that it would “most likely” arrive in the summer, marking his second full-length release.
However, Lil Nas X also revealed that the album was still in the planning stages and that he was focusing on creating memorable moments to accompany the music. “I could easily just release music,” he wrote, “but I have to build moments around this sh*t. I have to go bigger than before.” This suggests that the artist is planning something special for his next project, perhaps even bigger than the viral marketing campaigns he’s become known for.

When asked about the number of tracks on the upcoming album, Lil Nas X admitted that he was having trouble narrowing down his choices. “I love so many songs,” he wrote, “plus I’m still in the studio making music so it’s [going to] be hard to pick.” He also teased that the album would feature fewer sad songs, as he’s been feeling happier lately.
Lil Nas X has been busy since the release of his debut album, MONTERO, in 2021. He’s collaborated with artists like Jack Harlow, Megan Thee Stallion, and YoungBoy NBA, and contributed to the League of Legends soundtrack with “STAR WALKIN’.” He’s also made headlines for his fashion choices, including a stunning gown at the 2021 Met Gala and a pregnancy photoshoot to promote his single “Montero (Call Me By Your Name).”
