6lack's highly anticipated sophomore album is around the corner.
On Wednesday, the Atlanta artist revealed the cover art and release date for East Atlanta Love Letter, the follow-up to his 2016 effort Free 6lack. The art shows 6lack in a makeshift studio with his daughter, Syx Rose Valentine. EALL has been described as a love letter to the rapper's friends and family, as well as his current and past lovers. The project will also explore universal themes like love and empathy, as demonstrated in the album's previously released single "Switch."
Prior to Wednesday's reveal, 6lack decided to first share the news with his fans. The rapper sent out 20,000 postcards with the album's cover art, the official release date, and a question that underscored one of EALL's themes.
EALL will arrive Sept. 14 via LVRN/Interscope Records.
In support of the album, 6lack will hit the road for his From East Atlanta, With Love Tour. The trek will kick off Oct. 6 in Cape Town, South Africa, and will conclude Dec. 21 in Atlanta. You can check out the full tour schedule below.
