Everlast will release his fourth solo album, "White Trash Beautiful," May 25 via Island Def Jam. The set will be his first for the company following two albums issued through the now-defunct Tommy Boy label.See Also:
Mining similar bluesy territory as the former House Of Pain frontman's surprise breakthrough 1999 solo hit "What It's Like," the title track serves as the album's lead single. The cut has started to receive airplay on U.S. radio stations and its video has aired on VH1.
The artists' official Web site features streaming snippets of the single, as well as album cuts "Blinded by the Sun," "Lonely Road," "Soul Music" and expected second radio single "Broken."
Everlast has two upcoming U.S. shows before a brief early-to-mid-May European tour. While he's abroad, the rapper-turned-singer/songwriter will be seen performing the single on the May 10 episode of the NBC drama "Las Vegas."
Once back in the U.S., he's also due to appear on NBC's "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" on May 19. Additionally, footage of a Feb. 16 concert at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles will be available beginning April 30 as an In Demand cable television pay-per-view offering.
"White Trash Beautiful" is the follow-up to 2000's "Eat at Whitey's," which debuted at No. 20 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 347,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
