At the weekend, Posty hosted a Nirvana tribute livestream on YouTube in aid of The United Nations Foundation’s COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund for The World Health Organisation (WHO).
During the set, which saw the ‘White Iverson’ hitmaker joined by Blink-182’s Travis Barker on drums, Brian Lee on bass and Nick Mac on guitar, he offered an update on his next album.
“We’ve just been kinda fucking sitting around the house and working on this new album I got coming for y’all, I’m really fucking excited for it,” he said, in between performances of ‘Come As You Are’ and ‘Lounge Act’.
He added: “Trying to put it out as soon as I fucking can, I’m really proud of the music that we’re making, and I’m having a lot of fucking fun.”

Prior to Posty’s performance, Kurt Cobain’s widow and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love gave her approval to his Nirvana tribute.
Providing her support, Love shared a screenshot of NME’s original news article about Malone’s plans for the event, writing: “Thank you @PostMalone @Who (worldhealthorganization) & @Google who will match 5 million $ in donations.”
Post Malone has frequently expressed his love for Kurt Cobain’s band. Back in 2016, he covered ‘Nevermind’ track ‘Lithium’ during a Coachella performance.
The Foos frontman formed the rock group in 1995, after Nirvana disbanded in the wake of Kurt Cobain’s death in 1994.
Grohl – who played drums in Nirvana – says he was never concerned about the negative backlash he received from the group’s fans, and instead channelled their frustrations for motivation.
