Buddy has a new album on the way.

On Wednesday, the California native took to Instagram to announce that he will be releasing his third studio album later this month.

"DON’T FORGET TO BREATHE 3/29," he wrote alongside an image of the album's cover art.

The title of Buddy's new project takes its name from a short documentary the "You 2 Thank" rapper released earlier this month.

Titled "Don’t Forget To Breathe (The Hero’s Journey)", the documentary follows Buddy as he attends a “psychedelic retreat” in Portugal.

At the retreat, Buddy partook in hatha yoga, voice work and activation, and a “rebirthing session.”

“I had a chance to tap into my inner child and set some new intentions for my adult life," Buddy explained in the film.

“I was on a downward spiral," he said. "I’m trying to reset so I can fly high and not crash and burn.”

Buddy's last album, "Superghetto," was released in 2022.
