Since breaking out with "White Iverson" in early 2015, Post Malone has shown plenty of willingness (and ability) to push his music outside the realm of hip-hop and explore the sounds of folk, pop, rock, and country. Video of him covering songs like Bob Dylan's “Don’t Think Twice, It’s All Right” and Nirvana's "Lithium"​ gave an early peek at his ability to follow through on those ambitions—and subsequent singles like the acoustic guitar-driven "Go Flex" solidified his intentions.

Now, as his debut studio album Stoney nears (slated for a December 9 release), Post takes his furthest leap outside of hip-hop yet with the country-tinged Rex Kudo-produced single "Leave."

Over a slow-burning backdrop of guitars, strings, claps, and stomps, he sings from the perspective of a lovesick wanderer driven mad by his devotion to a doomed relationship—creating what feels like the soundtrack to a reluctant lone wolf's life-reflecting walk through the desert in an old Western film.
