Less than a year after retiring from music, Logic announced that he will return with new material this Friday.

The “Everyday” rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday evening to share the news with a statement nodding to Michael Jordan‘s 1995 “I’m back” announcement that confirmed his return to the NBA.

“The following statement was released today by Logic through his attorney Paul Rothenberg Partner of Rothenberg, Mohr & Binder, LLP located in NYC, in response to questions about his future career plans: ‘I’m back,’” the press release read.

The Maryland artist captioned the statement with “Friday,” suggesting that new music will arrive this Friday, June 18.

In the final sequence of his last collaborative track with Madlib, “Raddest Dad,” which released in May, Logic addressed his retirement from music in a hidden message that is revealed when the section is played in reverse.

“I retired, but I’ve been making music every single day since I retired because I love it,” he said. “And then I think what I realized was that I don’t like the industry. So I think I want to retire from the industry. That’s why I wanna do this music for free. Sometimes I wanna come back, but I don’t know if I should come back.”

“I mean if I did, I’d want to be independent,” he continued. “That’d be pretty cool, being a major artist and actually retiring from the industry instead of music in itself. I don’t know, I think about a lot. OK. Alright.”

Logic announced his retirement in tandem with the release of his last album, No Pressure, in July 2020. “Officially announcing my retirement with the release of No Pressure executive produced by No I.D.,” he wrote under an Instagram post on July 16, along with the album’s release date. “… It’s been a great decade. Now it’s time to be a great father.”

Elsewhere in music, Tyler, the Creator has officially announced his upcoming album, Call Me If You Get Lost.
