Lloyd is back in the game.
After taking a time out for self-reflection and personal growth, the 32-year-old singer has released his long-awaited comeback album Tru. The 11-track project follows Lloyd’s 2011 King of Hearts and includes the four tracks from his 2016 Tru EP.
The New Orleans-born artist spoke about the album in an interview with Complex earlier this month, when he compared his new material to soul food.
“Well, if you did get a chance to hear the EP, you know it kind of took on a more personal aspect and a more live music aspect as well, so just continuing those things,” he said. “Also, I wanted to put a lot of soul into it, you know? Kind of comparing music to food, I would say the goal was to stay as far away from fast food as possible and to focus on soul food. Definitely a lot of humanizing moments for me as an artist and as a man. Just talking about family, talking about the loss of loved ones, and now that I’m experiencing fatherhood, I’m kind of talking about that as well.”
