Lil Nas X has an exciting — and unexpected — new project coming.

The 21-year-old "Old Town Road" rapper announced on Tuesday that his upcoming children's book, C Is for Country, will be released on Jan. 5, 2021.

"I’m dropping the best kids' book of all time soon!" the star wrote on Twitter, adding to his followers that he "can't wait to share it with you all."

The children's book, which is being published under Random House Kids, a division of Penguin Random House, is currently available for preorder online.
