Post Malone has launched a new song entitled “Cooped Up,” featuring Roddy Ricch. It’s the most recent preview of his new album Twelve Carat Toothache. Malone stands as the producer of the single with his constant collaborator Louis Bell.
“Cooped Up” is the second single Post Malone has released from his upcoming album, after “One Right Now” with The Weeknd. He previewed other new songs on his Instagram Live not long ago, such as team-ups with the Kid Laroi, Doja Cat, and Fleet Foxes’ Robin Pecknold.
Twelve Carat Toothache will be released on June 3. It launches after Post Malone’s 2019 studio LP Hollywood’s Bleeding. Malone told Billboard that the latest album expresses “the ups and downs and the disarray and the bipolar aspect of being an artist in the mainstream.”
This weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live will feature Post Malone as a musical guest, his debut on the show, with Selena Gomez hosting it.
