After releasing albums in 2013 and 2015, Lizzo gained mainstream attention with her third studio album, Cuz I Love You, back in 2019. "Rumors" is set to be Lizzo's first batch of new music since the LP was released.

Prior to her announcement about "Rumors," the Grammy award-winning star teased that she was working on new music in a prior TikTok post. Seen in a music studio, Lizzo responded to a fan who said they heard an album was on the way, captioning the video, "THE RUMORS ARE FALSE."

"An album? Absolutely not. I'm not making no f---ing album," she said sarcastically in the clip. "I'm not in a studio. This isn't Mark Ronson. This isn't a whole [sound] board. I'm not hanging out with songwriters like Phil [Lawrence]. I haven't made a f---ing album. Where do you get it?"

After the release of "Rumors," Lizzo is scheduled to perform at multiple festivals this fall, starting with the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival on Sept. 4 — where she will be the first woman to headline.

Lizzo will also perform at Global Citizen Live on Sept. 25, Firefly Music Festival on Sept. 26, the New Orleans and Heritage Festival on Oct. 8 and Outside Lands on Oct. 29.
