Tog Dawg Entertainment singer SiR has opened up on his sobriety journey ahead of the release of his new album.

SiR is set to drop "Heavy," his first studio album in five years, on May 22.

On Tuesday, the California native swung by Sway's Universe to discuss the project and got candid on why it's been so long in the making.

“A lot of people wonder why it’s been so long since I released music. It’s because I wasn’t able to,” he said. “I was going through my challenges with addiction. I had a couple of stints in rehab. I had to separate myself and really start over.”

SiR went on to reveal that he is now "a year and three months sober."

"Got my life together and I’m blessed to be here," he said.

So far, SiR has released two singles from "Heavy."

First, he dropped "No Evil" back in January. The song's music video is a recreation of D'Angelo's iconic “Untitled (How Does It Feel)” video from 2000.

In February, the 37-year-old star then released "Karma," which features his TDE labelmate Isaiah Rashad.

On "Karma," SiR reflects on how fame has impacted him.

"I remember a time when we would еnjoy the breeze / Wasn't so concernеd with whether the weather was getting better / But one day, I was surprised to discover all eyes on me / I don't think I'ma get used to this attention, no, not ever," he sings.
