Nearly two years after releasing his breakout debut Free 6LACK, 6LACK is set to deliver his sophomore album East Atlanta Love Letter.
The Atlanta crooner has announced a Sept. 14 release date and revealed the cover art for the project, due via LVRN/Interscope Records. The artwork finds a multi-tasking 6LACK holding his young daughter on his chest in a carrier while recording in a makeshift studio.
According to a press release, EALL is an “open love letter from 6LACK to his daughter, family, friends, past, and current lovers, and includes difficult questions he’s had to answer while navigating through life.”
The album features the single “Switch” and “Nonchalant,” for which a video was released earlier this month. His fans were the first to discover the album’s release date and cover art. 6LACK mailed out 20,000 physical postcards with provocative questions like, “Do you believe in monogamy?” Some of them were shared by fans across social media.

I can’t believe my favorite artist drops his album the day before my birthday 🖤 @6LACK I believe that God put one person in the world to be my soulmate. I couldn’t imagine sharing that love I’ll have one day with someone other than that person. #eastatlantaloveletter pic.twitter.com/alvxOiGoRl
