According to Olu, the project has seen some delay due to COVID-19 but is definitely “coming.” He said, “It’s in [U.S.] Customs [and Border Protection] right now. Cole album gotta get through [U.S.] Customs [and Border Protection] ’cause you know, Corona.”
Olu continued to reveal that a Spillage Village and new EarthGang albums are in the works.
The upcoming Cole album will mark his sixth full-length release and his first since 2018’s KOD. Back in November 2019, the Dreamville head teased the project, possibly entitled The Fall Off, with a satirical political ad. Supporting the album title’s possibility is the fact that that the closing track of KOD is alternatively referred to “1985 (Intro to The Fall Off),” however nothing has been confirmed as of writing.
