|Lloyd Reveals Cover Art And A Release Date For His Upcoming Project 'Tru'|
The 5-track EP, due out Dec. 9 includes features from Rick Ross (“Heavenly Body”) and 2 Chainz, who guests on the remix to the title track.
“Although what you see on the outside is a guy who is apparently balls-to-the-wall naked in the woods near a waterfall, it’s really a moment for me to conquer all the fears that I might have had.
According to Lloyd, the location in North Georgia where the cover was shot was also instrumental to his recording process. “I would go there and oftentimes no one would be there,” he explained.
“I would say to myself, ‘Man, I wish I could just run around here naked. It would feel so free.’ I said, you know what, that’s what I’m going to do for the cover art.”
This was particularly important for Lloyd because he says the album is meant to showcase that bare naked honesty. “People try to hide their flaws,” he says, “but I think the flaws make them a beautiful person. And that’s what Tru is all about.”
