Q: When will your new album I ain't that man anymore be released? Also, what guests or covers will be on this album? And will we expect the sounds like Greed or heavier?
A: The new album will be released late this year, it's been very hard as i've been suffering from 2 major illnesses, 1 of which i had when i recorded Greed, but not as bad. The sound will have my overall signature sound, but a bit more heavier yes. I can't compare any albums with each other but i can say yes a bit Greedish but also a new chapter. There will be a few guests but i cannot release the names as of yet, and no covers, sorry. Thanks Douglas!
