BackgroundEdit

The album was announced on October 12, 2018. Lucas has stated that his childhood diagnosis with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder was the inspiration for the album.[3]

When I was a kid I was diagnosed with 'ADHD'.. they said I was aggressive, fidgety, hyperactive, impulsive, etc... they tried to put me on meds. Everyone around me including my own parents made me feel like I wasn’t normal. I had to constantly see a doctor who made me take tests and all that. They separated me from the regular kids in school and put me in these classes away from everyone [...] Creating music was and always has been my only therapy. It’s the only way I ever knew how to express myself. I was tired of being cut off every time I spoke or had a opinion.. I figured if I made music then you would have no choice but to listen to me and hear me out [...] The kid with 'ADHD' did it.[3]

Lucas released the album's lead single, "I Love", on October 17, 2018.[4] He continued to release singles from the album throughout 2019 and 2020. He unveiled the album's track listing on March 24, 2020.[5]

Commercial performanceEdit

ADHD debuted at number ten on the US Billboard 200 with 39,000 album-equivalent units, including 10,000 album sales in its first week. It is Lucas' first US top-10 album.[6]
