Fred again.. has announced his third album due this coming October via Atlantic Records, ‘Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022)’.

The forthcoming record is a follow-up to two deeply personal LPs ‘Actual Life (April 14 – December 17), and ‘Actual Life 2 (February 2 – October 15)’, both of which were released in the space of just a year.

Alongside the announcement of his third record, Fred also dropped the first track and lead of the next album, ‘Danielle (smile on my face)’, which samples the 070 Shake track ‘Nice To Have’.
