While your eating your breakfast this morning you can check out four new free songs an unreleased track from 2009 from J. Cole off of call the Truly Yours EP released early in the morning. In the letter enclosed below, he explains that these are more or less tracks that didn’t quite fit in on his forthcoming Born Sinner album, but still deserve to be heard. Cole also stressed on Twitter that Truly Yours is neither a mixtape nor an album preview, instead, simply some songs he wanted to share.
I appreciate you giving me the time I needed to grow, experiment, and find the direction for my 2nd album.. And I have.
Along the way I’ve recorded at least 4 albums worth of material, lots of it being unfinished demo versions waiting to be polished up, some of them are great songs and important stories that just won’t make the album (either they don’t fit Sonically, don’t fit Theme, or there’s just not enough space) .
Tonight, I want to give you a few of these songs because you deserve them. It’s hard as fuck for me to keep all this music from you for so long, so I know it’s been hard for you to wait. Thank you for your patience. Vibe out to these songs in their raw form, no polish.. just a lot of my soul..
The wait is over.
PS- 1st single coming this week. The album is hands down my best work yet. Can’t wait to share.
