Nyligen stod det klart att Lil Durk ska släppa ett nytt album med titeln ”Almost Healed”. I början av veckan avslöjade han albumets låtlista och de gästande artisterna. På det 21 spår långa albumet medverkar J. Cole, Chief Wuk, Future, 21 Savage, Kodak Black, Rob49, Juice WRLD och Morgan Wallen. För produktionen står bland annat Alicia Keys och Metro Boomin.
I en intervju med Apple Music berättar Lil Durk om hur namnet ”Almost Healed” kom till:
“At first it was 2.0. At first it was The Voice 2.0 and I just figured that going through a lot of stuff and people thinking they know me, thinking I’m going through a lot of that that I wasn’t going through and I was just having a basic conversation with Peter and we were just talking. I’m like, ‘Man, I’m almost healed for me just to come back outside.” And he’s like, “Man, that name’s so powerful.’ And I’m like, ‘Man, that’s the name right there, Almost Healed,’”. You could be almost healed from any situation which from a broken heart, a broken arm, a broken leg, anything. You know what I’m saying? So that name alone, it just ring bells, you know what I’m saying? It’s self-explanatory. You ain’t got to keep explaining to people what it means. It’s just like, everything you’ve been through is you can see it, you can feel it, you can hear it. But when the album come out, it’s like you can hear it, you can feel it, you can see it, you can hear different emotions in it. Everything”.
På Instagram skriver Lil Durk vidare om bakgrunden till titeln:
“As The Voice I’m speaking for us all and what we go through that everyone may not realize. Many young men like myself have faced some sort of trauma in their lives. This album is a representation of what transpires through difficult situations and the processes we go through while healing.
First, my father in prison for 26 years…Almost Healed
Then, losing my dawg King Von….Almost Healed
Next, losing my brother…Almost Healed
Having to endure a pain like no other…Almost Healed”
