The album will be his fifth release on RCA Records and, judging by the title, he's not playing any games when it comes to the direction of the album. 

It's no secret that after the Jay Z song "Death of Auto-Tune," there was a shift in music that frowned upon the tool that T-Pain had largely built his sound around, mastering a way to use it to enhance his sound rather than utilizing it as the crutch that many artists did after his debut. With that shift, some music fans became fickle and started to ignore music that used Auto-Tune altogether, inadvertently shading the "Buy You a Drink" singer — despite the fact that Kanye West's 808s and Heartbreaks was a hit and used the tool throughout the project. But let us not digress. 

On December 11, T-Pain will be back and better than ever. So on that date, we shall rejoice!
