It’s been way too long since Yelawolf’s major label debut in 2011 with Radioactive–but now our ears are graced with the fifth chapter in the “Box Chevy” saga–literally, being “Box Chevy V.” Yela hopped on Twitter to announce the release, and it appears that the Alabama native has also found a new hobby.
The actual release of the new Love Story remains postponed. That’s after lots of talk about the album being released at the end of 2013. Now we’re hoping to see the album by March. That’s partly because Yela has a history of working with and around SXSW. He was a breakout artist there once–and while he’s not on the official showcase lineup at this time, it would be a wonder if he didn’t show at all.
Check out Yelawolf’s rambling official (and slightly censored) statement and stream “Box Chevy V” below…
