(AllHipHop News) Kid Cudi and producing partner Dot Da Genius have announced the delay of their upcoming, rock-inspired album, WZRD.
The album was originally set for release on January 30 - the same day as Cudi’s birthday – but will now be hitting retailers on February 28.
Dot Da Genius revealed the news on Twitter last night (January 16) with the following message: “Hey Guys, WZRD Update. Me and Cudi have been working on our debut album and it’s almost near completion. We are in the final stages of mastering but we really had to take time and pay attention to the sonics as this is new territory for us. With that being said, we have decided to change the release date. We are looking roughly at Feb 28th. Y’all know how Cudi is’ and I’m the same way. Everything has to be in place and now it is. I know it’s late notice, we were trying to keep the date but got wrapped up making this album perfect for y’all. However for making you guys wait a little longer we will release ‘Brake‘ & ‘Teleport 2 Me‘ on iTunes on the previously said date. AS WELL AS ‘DOSE OF DOPENESS‘. Hopefully that will hold you guys over until the album drops!”
Cudi followed up Dot’s announcement with a tweet of his own: “My whole career Ive had 2 prove people wrong, WZRD will be no different. This album will finally make people believers, WE CAN DO ANYTHING.”
Previously-released tracks will be available for purchase on iTunes on January 30, with WZRD hitting store shelves on February 28th.
