Kid Cudi is right back on track after a stint in rehab, he drops his Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin album.
Cudi has been teasing the project since May with various updates throughout the year, including the revelation that André 3000 will make multiple appearances. The double disc album was slated to drop in September, but was delayed supposedly due to sample clearances.
Then the Cleveland artist checked himself into rehab for depression and suicidal thoughts before making his return at ComplexCon.
Cudi’s last full output was the “alternative” Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven.

Kid Cudi has delayed the release of Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin’ due to sample clearances, he wrote in a note to his fans on Twitter. The LP was supposed to drop tonight and doesn’t have a new release date yet. He says he’s working on releasing two singles to hold the people over until the full project can be released.
This isn’t the first time lovers of music have had to wait for projects, as this summer has been chock full of delayed releases. Frank Ocean kept the world on its toes as they awaited what turned out to be Blonde. Travis Scott also dragged out the release for Birds in the Trap Sing McKnightAnd French Montana’s MC4 is due out in a few weeks after it was delayed for the same reason as Cudi’s LP, sample clearances.
So we are all used to patiently waiting… (50 Cent voice)

Kid Cudi is set to release an album this month and he says the physical will be a double-disc project.
Upon making the announcement on Twitter, Cudi says he will not be fueling the ongoing streaming war as he promises that the project will be available on “ALL PLATFORMS for streaming and download.” Physical copies will shortly follow, which will be in the format of a double disc because the project is 18 tracks and more than 90 minutes long.
The Cleveland artist expressed his gratitude for his fans and said he wants to make their experience as easy as possible.
“Music shouldn’t be a headache to find especially in a digital space,” he says. “It’s actually easier going to Best Buy to get a CD than it is to DL one.”
He previously announced plans to drop two projects this year, Passion, Pain and Demon Slayin and a project whose title has not yet been announced.
Whatever comes this month will be the follow-up to Speedin’ Bullet 2 Heaven.
