Common‘s next album is already gaining serious buzz. Universal Mind Control is set to hit stores, and with talk of Neptunes production, Common‘s garnered the attention of many. But, Common‘s still thinking ahead. He’s already saying that The Believer LP will be next.
“The Believer is definitely gonna be an album,” he told MTV. “It’s gonna be the next album. I was ready to make The Believer, then I started working on an EP called Invincible Summer [click to read]. Then I was like, ‘OK, Universal Mind Control — that’s the name of the single.’ Like we said on the song, ‘If you wanna dance, let’s dance.’ That’s what that whole concept is like: Whatever you want the people to do, you create the music for them to do it.”
As reported, Com‘s been working mostly with the Neptunes in an attempt to make party music.
“Where I am with Universal Mind Control, which is the name of the album as well as the single, I wanted to make some music people can enjoy. It’s a lot of stuff going on in the world right now. Sometimes people need to release. I felt that energy abroad, going to different parties in Spain and London, even back in the States. It was good times. I want people to have good times musically.”
Universal Mind Control is set to be released in early December. He’s also planning a tour for January.
