After he performed on the McDonald’s and Universal stages at SXSW 2015, caught up with NF to talk about his concerts, as well as his upcoming album Mansion.

“When I go into doing music, I’m never like, ‘The album’s going to be called this, I’m going to talk about this and that’s what I want it to be about,'” NF said. “My music’s so personal, and it’s whatever instrumentals make me feel.”

Capitol CMG released the lead single off of Mansion, “Intro,” last week — after a snippet of the song premiered on a promo for the FOX television series “Empire.”

Mansion drops on March 31. Pre-order the album on iTunes or Amazon.
