Kid Cudi’s ‘Indicud’ album cover and tracklist displayed [Update: iTunes preorder up, new single out, JKL performance]
With less than a month left to go, the album cover and tracklist for Kid Cudi’s third solo record (fourth overall) has been revealed for all to see. The album art, like Cudder’s past few music videos, features a baroque-inspired frame. “The album art represents me. A ball of flames in a rose gold frame,” the rapper tweeted.
Indicud features a total of 18 tracks including singles “Just What I Am,” ”King Wizard,” and “Immortal.” And for long-time fans of the once Lonely Stoner, a special track titled “Solo Dolo Part II” featuring rising rapper Kendrick Lamar will increase anticipation for the album’s release tenfold. Other featured artists include Cudi’s close friend King Chip (the artist formally known as Chip Tha Ripper is featured on two tracks), Father John Misty, Too $hort, Haim, RZA, A$AP Rocky, and Michael Bolton. Jump after the break to see the full tracklisting.
Currently Indicud is up for preorder at Amazon and at Kid Cudi’s official online store. His store sells digital and physical copies of the album, as well as the vinyl. On April 23 the hype becomes real.
Update (4/1): Today Indicud popped up on iTunes and is now available for preorder at that popular destination for music. Once you get there, you’ll notice that a previously unheard song “Girls” (Featuring Too $hort) is available for download. That’s the fourth single off the album–preview it at iTunes. Also, after the break I’ve posted Cudder’s first live televised performance of “Immortal” on Jimmy Kimmel Live. (Click here for more…)
During his monologue on Halloween night, Jimmy Kimmel issued a fun challenge for parents: to say that they ate all of their children’s Halloween candy, record their reactions, and upload it to YouTube. Kimmel stitched together a bunch of the most entertaining videos and the compilation sits above. It’s funny; almost every clip involves a young child hearing the devastating news and immediately drooping their heads in tears of sadness and frustration. You’ll want to make it to the end because the final clip involving two brothers might just be the best thing I’ve watched in a while. Enjoy!
Coldplay set up shop at UCLA last week and performed a myriad of their hit songs including “Fix You” and “Viva La Vida”, plus a tribute to Amy Winehouse. Among the 90-minute set were also a couple of new tracks from their upcoming fifth studio album: the previously released single “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” and a brand new one, “Charlie Brown.” The new track is a sweeping, atmospheric anthem that only Coldplay could do right. Watch the live performance above, and pop after the break for a bonus video. (Click here for more…)
Ya’ll remember The Creepy La-La-La Guy? Jimmy Kimmel was somehow able to get (best supporting) actor Christoph Waltz (Inglourious Basterds) to reenact that creepster on a whole ‘nother level. Watch the bizzare hilarity unfold in ‘Der Humpink.’
This hilarious segment also aired last night during the Jimmy Kimmel Live After Oscars special. It features a wide range of “handsome” actors including Patrick Dempsey and Matthew McConaughey, with memorable appearences by John Krasinski, Lenny Kravitz, and many others.
