Post Malone has released a new single, “Overdrive”. The song is the third track to come out of his forthcoming fifth album, Austin, out July 28 via Mercury Records/Republic Records. An official live Vevo performance of ‘Overdrive’ will arrive on Friday.

The acoustic guitar single sees Malone brooding over a relationship. “I’ll remove my tattoos if that’s cool with you,” he sings on the mid-tempo rock track. “I’ll do anything to be cool with you.”

“Overdrive” follows Malone’s recent singles “Chemical substance” and “Mourning,” which will also appear on Austin. The musician, whose real name is Austin Post, revealed the album’s title on Instagram earlier this year and described it as some of his best music yet.

“It’s been some of the most fun music, some of the most challenging and rewarding music for me, at least – trying to really push myself and make really cool stuff,” he said. “I played guitar on every song on the record and it was a really, really fun experience and I’m really, really excited to share it with you.”

The album will feature 17 songs, including “Something Real,” which Malone teasing on Instagram last month. The snippet of the track featured the singer’s soulful vocals, while a haunting choir repeated the lyrics, ‘Something real’ and ‘Something I can feel’.

Malone recently hit the road in North America for his If Y’all Weren’t Here, I’d Be Crying tour, which kicked off July 8 in Indiana and includes stops in Buffalo, Toronto, Tampa and Los Angeles. In August, he will be heard on the big screen when he voices Ray Fillet in the cartoon Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem.

The musician’s latest album, Twelve carat toothachedropped last July.
