Over the weekend, Posty hosted a live broadcast of the Nirvana tribute on YouTube for the benefit of the United Nations Foundation for the World Health Organization (WHO) COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.
During filming, which saw hitmaker ‘White Iverson’ joined by Blink-182’s Travis Barker on drums, Brian Lee on bass and Nick Mac on guitar, he offered an update on his upcoming album.
“We just sit around the house a bit and work on this new album that I’m coming for all of you, I’m really excited for that,” he said, between the performances of ‘Come As You Are’ and “Lounge Act”.
He added, “By trying to get it out as soon as I can, I’m really proud of the music we make, and I have a lot of fun. “

Before Posty’s performance, the widow of Kurt Cobain and the singer of Hole Courtney Love gave his approval to his tribute to Nirvana.
Offering her support, Love shared a screenshot of NMEMalone’s original press article on Malone’s plans for the event states: “Thank you @PostMalone @Who (worldhealthorganization) & @Google which will be worth $ 5 million in donations. “
Post Malone has often expressed his love for Kurt Cobain’s group. In 2016, he covered the Nevermind “Lithium” track during a performance of Coachella.
Dave Grohl explained last month how Nirvana’s legacy fueled the fate of Foo Fighters.
The Foos singer formed the rock group in 1995, after the dissolution of Nirvana following the death of Kurt Cobain in 1994.
Grohl – who played drums at Nirvana – says he was never concerned about the negative aftermath he received from fans of the group, and instead channeled their frustrations for motivation.
