T-Pain Set to Deliver New Album ‘On Top Of The Covers’ on March 17
On Top Of The Covers, T-Pain’s eagerly awaited and highly anticipated covers album will be released on March 17th via Nappy Boy Entertainment.
Fans have been begging for T-Pain to create music that highlights the strength of his natural voice for years, and On Top Of The Covers is the result. After giving what at the time was the most-watched NPR Tiny Desk performance of all time, he astonished fans by being named the winner of the inaugural season of FOX’s The Masked Singer, revealing the magic of his non-AutoTuned vocals.
On Top Of The Covers features covers of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come,” Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” Dr. Hook’s “Sharing The Night Together,” Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me,” Chris Stapleton’s Tennessee Whiskey,” Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life” ft. NandoSTL (a Nappy Boy Entertainment artist), and Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs.”
“This covers album has been years in the making,” T-Pain said. “I started recording this right after I won ‘The Masked Singer.’ It got put on hold for a bit but now that I’m independent, I’m able to do whatever I want to do through Nappy Boy Entertainment and this is something I’ve felt strongly about for a long time. These songs are not what you’d expect when you hear that T-Pain is doing a covers album and that is what I think is cool about it.”
T-Pain will perform two extremely unique back-to-back gigs in Los Angeles to commemorate the album’s debut. The Sun Rose at Pendry West Hollywood is scheduled to host “An Intimate Evening With T-Pain” on March 17 and 18. In addition to some of his biggest hits and fan favorites, he and his band will play a special set of songs from On Top Of The Covers.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, Feb. 17th at 1pm ET/10am PT at www.tpain.com.
