After postponing his European tour to focus more on fatherhood and new music, 6LACK delivered on the latter and doled out three new tracks in the wee hours of Tuesday morning (Nov. 14) in celebration of his debut album Free 6LACK. 

6LACK first teased the tracks by taunting fans in an Instagram post that read, "it’s a good night for a new song... or two... or three." 6LACK released Free 6LACK  a year ago, with him flying solo across the 11-track effort, but on the bonus songs, 6LACK is joined by a few big-name guests. On one of the new bonus tracks, 6LACK connects with BANKS for the slow-burner "In Between" where the two crooners sing about the complications in their relationship. "Asking me for space/ I told you, "No"/ You said to leave/ I said, "fine, I'll just go," Banks sings. "You told me, "Wait, why would you leave?"/ You used to fight for me/ And I just wanted all your attention."

In addition to the Banks-assisted track, 6LACK also gifted fans two more sensual bangers, "Glock Six" and "One Way" featuring T-Pain. The pair's mellifluous vocals drape over the auto-tune laden cut as they sing about missing their significant others and planning a "one way" trip for a steamy late-night adventure.

6LACK recently announced on social media that he'd be taking a short hiatus, but gave fans an update on what to expect from his upcoming album. "I never want to disappoint you guys in the long run, so I've made the decision that right now the music needs to be finished and I want to actually feel what it's like to be a dad," he wrote in a lengthy message. "I think that's what this next album is for: being more reflective of my current life. The last project was a summary of my past, this one is an update on my present."
