On Monday, K.O delighted fans when he not only announced his long awaited third solo studio album, but also revealed the album artwork, along with the title.
Slated for release on September 27th, K.O’s third solo project is called PTY UnLTD.
Perfectly synchronised to launch along with the looming summer, the album will premiere during the commercial peak of his latest hit, Say U Will, the simmering collaborative joint that saw him team up with the beautiful Nandi Madida.
The songbird has been celebrating her first ever number one, which also marks KO’s successful revival.
PTY UnLTD will also come just months after the Cashtime catalogue was availed across digital streaming platforms earlier this year. “It’s a piece of history we wanted to preserve”, he told QuenchSA in an exclusive interview, in which he also began laying out the elements which will define his next sonic ecosystem.
The sound will not adhere to the trappings of Skhanda, the Hip Hop and Kwaito fusion he masterfully pioneered and popularised with his previous works. It’s a fresh start for K.O, who sees the successes of his recent releases – which includes Supa Dupa – as keys unlocking his next chapter.
“What I have coming up is gonna be appreciated on a large scale, just based on where I am. I think I found my feet again. I can’t wait for people to hear”, he told QuenchSA.
