Although it was set to drop later this month, Yelawolf's highly anticipated Shady Records debut has been moved back a bit ... until November.

The album, titled Radioactive, will be the Alabama rapper's first full-length project. It has been moved from October 25th, now to November 21st.

According to Yelawolf, he needed time to add some final touches to his project.

"I needed to add some important finishing touches to the album, which resulted in the new release date," said Yelawolf, who also unveiled the album;s artwork. "I have some surprises in store for the fans that have to be seen before the album comes out. It's definitely worth the wait."

The album, which finds Yelawolf working with such producers as SupaHotBeats, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League, The Audibles, and Diplo, follows his critically acclaimed, Trunk Muzik 0-60 project, a 2010 compilation of tracks from his Trunk Muzik mixtape, along with previously unavailable recordings.

Yelawolf is currently on the road with The "Hard White" Tour, alongside DJ Craze and Rittz. The tour began in Starkville, MS and criss-crosses the U.S. before wrapping up in Las Vegas on October 28th.
