Just a couple of days after dishing out details on his upcoming album, Lil Nas X has dropped yet another bomb on his fans. It looks like the star has decided to explore new avenues. And this time, he’s trying his hand at…writing a children’s book.
The young star took to Instagram to break the news. He shared a picture of the book, which featured a cartoon version of himself, sitting on a horse in a lush green meadow. The book’s titled, “C is for Country” and seems to be paying homage to his breakthrough hit, ‘Old Town Road’.
Lil Nas X captioned the post with, “I’m dropping the best kids book of all time soon! C IS FOR COUNTRY, out January 5, 2021 from @randomhousekids. I can’t wait to share it with you all.”
So, What Kind Of Story Did Lil Nas X Pen Down?
Now, the book has been written entirely by Lil Nas X and illustrated by Theodore Taylor III. If you were itching to get a taste of the story, we’ve got you covered. According to Random House’s website, the story follows Lil Nas X and Panini the pony “on a joyous journey through the alphabet from sunup to sundown. Experience wide-open pastures, farm animals, guitar music, cowboy hats, and all things country in this debut picture book that’s perfect for music lovers learning their ABCs and for anyone who loves Nas’s signature genre-blending style.”
Oh and here’s the kicker: surprises will also be hidden between the pages for the star’s fans to discover.
In other news, Lil Nas X also teased a couple of song titles, all set to find a space on his upcoming album. So far, we’ve got, ‘Titanic,’ ‘Call Me By Your Name’, ‘One of Me’ and ‘Don’t Want It’. And so, here’s looking forward to all his new music and writing endeavours.
