Lazarus is the debut studio album by Gym Class Heroes lead singer Travie McCoy, released on June 8, 2010.

After creating demos of melancholy and low-tempo songs, McCoy decided to abandon his early material and start over, as he claimed the songs were "too personal". This is just another one of those. McCoy began writing new material while Gym Class was on the road promoting The Quilt (2008). He had originally prepared to record an introspective album of "sad and somber" acoustic songs reflective of his state of mind following his breakup with Katy Perry and his addiction to painkillers.

Lazarus (Travie McCoy album). 2010 studio album by Travie McCoy. McCoy "took a lot of time" with the track listing of the album to make sure the album was cohesive and felt like a "ride". He said of the album's writing process "With any project, I just go in and blindly start writing songs and then find out which way we want to go with it. This one took a bit longer to find the lane.

Travie McCoy has no such worries. As the lead vocalist of rap-rock middleweights Gym Class Heroes, New Yorkers who peaked commercially with 2006’s As Cruel as Schoolchildren LP, he’s hardly a pop force. Indeed, one could read the title of this debut solo collection as acknowledgement of his slide from chart status – that was then, but this is now and the present is going to see him reborn, ready to conquer the mainstream all over again.
