Tedashii announced the release date of his upcoming EP, This Time Around, in an unusual way on Tuesday.

Reach Records told its social media followers to call a phone number for a special Tedashii announcement, which was that This Time Around will release this Friday, March 4.

“The whole idea behind This Time Around is progression and being me,” Tedashii said on a recording. “A lot of stuff has been happening in life, and part of this entire new season exemplifies just who I’ve become after everything I’ve gone through. My wife and I, we lost our one-year-old son Chase, and I’ve seen myself progress through it, and even still dealing with it, becoming something new, so this music exemplifies that and shows that in every way.”
