T-Pain is releasing a covers album. The Grammy-winning singer/songwriter has announced his new album, On Top of the Covers, drops March 17 on Nappy Boy Entertainment.
The seven-track album will include T-Pain’s take on classics, including Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” and Frank Sinatra’s “That’s Life,” as well as modern songs like Sam Smith’s “Stay With Me.”
“This covers album has been years in the making. I started recording this right after I won The Masked Singer,” says T-Pain. “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.”
He adds, “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 celebrate On Top of the Covers with two back-to-back shows in Los Angeles, California, on March 17 and March 18. Dubbed An Intimate Evening With T-Pain, the show will feature selections from the covers album and a mix of songs from T-Pain’s catalog. Tickets go on Sale Friday, Feb. 17 at tpain.com.
On Top of the Covers is the follow-up to his 2019 album, 1Up. The album featured Lil Wayne, O.T. Genesis, Russ and more.
