Rapper/ some-time actor Kid Cudi has gone and named January 30 as the release date for the debut album from his new musical venture, WZRD. If you’re wondering who or what WZRD actually is/ are, it’s Cudi and producer Dot Da Genius’ progressive rock collaboration, previously known as 2 B Continuum. So far we’ve had a first taste of Cud’s new sound via introspective demo ‘Angels And Demons’, which may or may not feature on the duo’s as-yet untitled first record. Now comes a new track, fresh off the mixing desk, offering a fresh insight into the WZRD’s cosmic rock realm.
Tweets Cudder of the track in question, a woozy meld of psychedelic guitars, stomping beats and his own unique take on a slurred rock vocal, titled ‘Brake’: “Tonight, you will all witness the new chapter, the new journey. Music will never be the same…”. He also had a message for fans: “Thank You to everyone showing love man, you have no idea how much it means us. On cloud niner at the moment! I LOVE YOU ALL!”, and this one for haters: “To the people that dont like it, I do, and I feel good about it. Thats all that matters”.
