Kid Cudi has announced a prelude EP set to lead up to Man on the Moon 3.
During a Dallas, Texas show yesterday (October 16), Cudi announced the new project, which he said would be released in the next three months.
“When I give you the release date, it will be 24 hours before it’s released,” Kid Cudi said to the concert crowd. “You won’t know when it’s going to happen, but it’s definitely going to happen in the next three months.”
Kid Cudi said that he was working on this EP with Dot Da Genius and King Chip.
“That’s all I give a fuck about,” Cudi said. “As long as I’ve got King Chip, I’m good. So it’s me and King Chip.”
Cudi said that the EP will be a continuation of his Man on the Moon series.
“This will be a prelude to Man On The Moon 3,” Cudi said. “It’s all attached to the story. When Man On The Moon 3 comes out, you will be able to play this EP and segue into Man On The Moon 3. It’ll be a seamless connection.”
Cudi also confirmed that Man on the Moon 3 is slated to be released in 2015.
“Since Man On The Moon 3 is not coming out until 2015, I mean, I couldn’t not give you more music,” Cudi said.
Kid Cudi has released three albums thus far, including 2009’s Man On The Moon: The End Of Day, 2010’s Man On The Moon II: The Legend Of Mr. Rager and 2013’s Indicud.
