T-Pain has announced the release of his highly anticipated, long-awaited covers album On Top Of The Covers, out March 17th via Nappy Boy Entertainment.
On Top Of The Covers arrives after years of fans clamoring for T-Pain to release music that showcases the power of his natural voice. The wonder of his non-AutoTuned vocals was discovered when he shocked audiences as the winner of the first season of FOX’s The Masked Singer after previously delivering what was then the most-watched NPR Tiny Desk session of all time.
Featuring an eclectic and unexpected mix of reimagined hits, T-Pain’s stunningly soulful and smooth voice is front and center throughout the album’s seven tracks. On Top Of The Covers features creative 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.”
Says T-Pain, \”This covers album has been years in the making. 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.\”
To celebrate the album’s release, T-Pain will play two very special back-to-back shows in Los Angeles. ‘An Intimate Evening With T-Pain’ is set for March 17th and 18th at The Sun Rose at Pendry West Hollywood. He and his band will perform a special set of songs from On Top Of The Covers as well as some of his biggest hits and fan favorites.
Tickets go on sale this Friday February 17th at 1pm ET/10am PT at www.tpain.com.
