Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’

Kid Cudi’s promise to release two separate albums in 2016 might have been knocked a little off the track around the time he checked himself into rehab for depression earlier this year, but he’s making good on at least half of that pledge today. As of this very minute, you can stream the 32-year-old Cleveland-born musician’s sixth album, Passion, Pain, & Demon Slayin’, on your choice of Apple Music or Spotify. (Presumably, you can also buy your own copy to keep in personal collection alongside all your Bing Crosby albums, grandpa.)

Featuring contributions from Pharrell Williams, Travis Scott, and Willow Smith—all of whom were thanked by Cudi upon his departure from rehab—plus André 3000, this marks his return to hip-hop after last year’s poorly received alt-rock double-album Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven. His long-awaited Man On The Moon III will presumably be released at some point in 2017, but who knows? Maybe he’ll release an album of electrotango compositions instead.
