Fresh out of rehab and feeling "great and brand new," Kid Cudi is slated to release his twice-delayed new album, Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin', on December 16.
Originally scheduled for release in late September, Cudi's fifth solo studio album was delayed after the artist entered a rehabilitation program for depression and suicidal urges. The music video for "Frequency," one of two lead singles released shortly before his rehab stint, shined a light on his dark depression with its Avatar-like visuals and underlying escapism narrative.
In addition to revealing the new release date and slightly modified artwork, Cudi has also released "Baptized in Fire," a new single featuring Travis Scott. This is the pair's second collaboration of 2016, following "Through the Late Night" on Scott's Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight album.
Should You Pay an A&R Consultant to Listen to Your Music?
No. But a hiring a consultant can be helpful.
After several months of social media fueled beef, it's nice to know that in two weeks time the only thing that will matter is the music. Our fingers are crossed for a great album. And lots and lots of humming.
