YELAWOLF ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE DATE FOR DEBUT FULL-LENGTH STUDIO ALBUM RADIOACTIVE
ALBUM TO BE RELEASED BY GHET-O-VISION ENTERTAINMENT/SHADY RECORDS/DGC/INTERSCOPE ON November 21st
ALABAMA RAPPER ON THE ROAD FOR “HARD WHITE” TOUR
October 7, 2011 — Santa Monica, CA — Alabama rapper Yelawolf has decided to move the release of his debut full-length studio album Radioactive from its previously announced October 25th drop date to put extra finishing touches on the album. Radioactive will now be released by Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment/Shady Records/DGC/Interscope on November 21st.
“I needed to add some important finishing touches to the album which resulted in the new release date,” said Yelawolf. “I have some surprises in store for the fans that have to be seen before the album comes out. It’s definitely worth the wait.”
The album’s first single, “Hard White (Up In The Club),” featuring Lil Jon, is currently available via all digital retailers. Radioactive is Yelawolf’s first album after the partnering of Ghet-O-Vision Entertainment and the Eminem-led Shady Records. The album, which finds Yelawolf working with such producers as SupaHotBeats, Justice League, The Audibles, and Diplo, follows Yelawolf's critically acclaimed Trunk Muzik 0-60 (Ghet-O-Vision/DGC/Interscope) — a 2010 compilation of tracks from his Trunk Muzik mixtape along with previously unavailable recordings.
Yelawolf is currently on the road with The “Hard White” Tour alongside DJ Craze and Rittz. The tour began in Starkville, MS and criss-crosses the U.S. before wrapping up in Las Vegas on October 28th.
