Born Sinner dropped June 18, giving us our first glimpse at the highly anticipated project. The record is available for purchase now, and Cole has promised that more content will be coming our way in the not too distant future. A recent interview that he conducted with Revolt TV also has Cole revealing some details about what he hopes to do with his next LP, and how it is connected to his current one. To find out more about the album, be sure to check out the interview below.
As far as I know, this isn’t the first album that’s ever been called Born Sinner, you know what I mean? I don’t even know if there’s any other album that it’s ever been called. That’s just the first album I’ve ever recorded that I put it on. Or whatever. It’s the first time I’ve ever had the thought, “I’m gonna call this Born Sinner.” I don’t know if the label wanted that or it was just something that just happened to be.
“The name – as you know it – has been around for some time,” Cole added. “That was my first album, but every so often when I make an album I have this feeling, and this time it felt like, ‘I might actually name this Born Sinner. I don’t know if anybody else is saying this or if this is some sort of label. I feel like it’s my first time that I’m like, ‘Ok. This is the first time I make this project. I’m gonna call this Born Sinner.’”
