Claiming the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart upon its surprise release last month, BRYSON TILLER’s True to Self is now available physically in stores via Trapsoul/RCA Records.

“With the physical packaging of True to Self, Bryson and I wanted to build around a theme that represents his music and gives fans an experience from the moment they see it in stores,” says Chase Ichiki, Creative Director of #JUSTAREGULARDAY. “We wanted to utilize every component of the album’s packaging from the versatility of a digipak’s panels, the disc art/tray, to the sticker that that goes on top of the package.”

The physical copy of True to Self is fashioned after an old-school film canister, creating a comprehensive storyboard that showcases the experiences and influences behind the project. “It is wrapped in silver mylar with a yellow sticker documenting the run time and other audio specs of the album, mimicking the metal containers film used to be delivered in,” says Ichiki. “Inside you’ll find the CD label art as a carousel tray of photo slides sitting on top of an overhead shot of a slide projector, representing the memories that were the inspiration behind all of the music on this project. As well as the definition of the phrase that titled the album, True to Self.”

The album contains four special unseen photos, which have been transformed into functioning photo slides with captions from Bryson. Accompanied by a booklet of personal photos shot exclusively by Bryson’s photographer Ro.lexx, the physical release gives fans an inside look into the album, further epitomizing the aptly-named title, True to Self. Bryson previews the album’s physical format in an exclusive unveiling video, which can be viewed and downloaded here.

Bryson most recently stopped by Apple Music’s Beats 1 Radio for an interview with Zane Lowe, giving his first in-depth commentary on the album since its release. The nearly 30-minute long conversation details True to Self’s creative inspiration and touches on everything from the singer’s artistic insecurities to the relationship with his grandmother and even Nintendo 64. You can listen to the interview on Apple Music here.

The Grammy-nominated singer will bring his new album to fans on his upcoming “Set It Off Tour,” which will kick off this August in Atlanta and make over 25 stops before concluding for a hometown finale at Louisville’s KFC Yum! Center. Taking the Staples Center stage at this weekend’s BET Experience, Bryson Tiller announced a new Los Angeles stop on his upcoming “Set It Off Tour.” Bryson will bring his latest album True to Self as well as favorites from 2015’s T R A P S O U L to the historic Greek Theatre on August 14th. The new date is part of his second headlining tour, which will feature special guest openers H.E.R. and Metro Boomin, and is the first round of new dates since his hugely successful “T R A P S O U L Tour,” which sold out 47 dates in both the

US and Europe, including two back-to-back shows at Radio City Music Hall. Presale tickets for The Greek Theatre show can be purchased beginning Wednesday, June 28, and general tickets will be available to the public on Friday, June 30 at 10am local via https://www.trapsoul.com and https://www.AEGPresents.com.
