Post Malone is getting ready to release his new album Austin. Ahead of the release, Post Malone sat with Zane Lowe to discuss the album, specifically the recording process.
“It was so fun, I tell you, to play guitar on every song,” Post revealed. “I don’t know necessarily if I’ve been waiting to make it. It’s always something that’s kind of been wanted to be made, if that makes sense. I don’t know. A lot of the times we go in and we do the music and the melody has never really been
“The way that I work it, the music and the melody has never been written at the same time. It’s usually there’s music there and then the melody comes after. But with that, just being able to sit there, like I said, reverb cross-legged here over in, I think Studio D… with the cans on and so much reverb…You know what I mean? And so it’s really cool and it was a really eye-opening experience for me and how I could write music and how I could make music. And it’s not just one way. There’s so many different ways, like you said. It’s just a song is there, you just got to find it.”
Post Malone also noted that the music he listened to as a child influenced the influence. Those artists were Radiohead, Stevie Wonder, and FleetwoodMac.
This edition of Post Malone is different from the past version as he is operating as a family man, no longer a rock star. During the conversation with Lowe, Malone detailed how he works on his time management.
“I don’t know, it’s just the schedule keeps getting,” Malone said. “I find the more that the world opens back up and everybody’s going on tour and everybody’s doing stuff, which makes a lot of sense, but the schedule just keeps getting fuller. And now that I’m a dad, the schedule only got more full.
“And now that releasing new music, schedule gets fuller and fuller and fuller. But the one thing that’s constant is the amount of time in a day and then the amount of time before we go on tour again or the amount of time before…I’m definitely more tired. Which I was always tired before, but now I’m more tired.”
