"So I trolled all of you super hard tonight because tomorrow the label/pr's are officially announcing my new album," Blanco said.
Back in May, another song off the album, "High School Never Ends" featuring Woodkid, came out and featured a modern Romeo and Juliet inspired romance between Blanco and a skinheaded man, who becomes the victim of a hate crime.
A new single followed, called "The Plug Won't." with lyrics like "You feel so numb, drugs got you gone. Don't fuck my feelings yes I'm really coming home. Off limit topics pull the cover off i'm blown, love lock link handcuff me to bone to bone." Woodkind came back to produce, along with Jeremiah Meece.
Finally, Blanco released the whole track list:
