Kid Cudi's forthcoming project Satellite Flight: the Journey to Mother Moon, which was announced last fall as an EP, has been extended to a full-length album. The rapper revealed the news via Twitter, promising an excited fan that the release date wouldn't change as a result.
"Satellite Flight is an album now, that's what [you] get for being so patient [with] me. [You're] gonna love it," he assured fans.
When it was first announced, Cudi called the project a prelude to the third installment of his Man on the Moon series. It's unclear whether making it a full-fledged album has changed those plans. "When Man on the Moon 3 comes out, you'll be able to play [Satellite Flight] and segue into Man on the Moon 3," Cudi said back in October. "It will be a seamless connection."
A firm release date for the LP, which will feature collaborations with Dot Da Genius and King Chip, has not yet been announced. Kid Cudi is waiting until the last minute to provide that info to fans. "When I give you the release date, it will be 24 hours before it's released," he teased.
Man on the Moon 3 isn't slated for release until 2015. But the Journey to Mother Moon will not be the only Cudi fix fans will get this year. He co-stars in the action flick Need for Speed with actor Aaron Paul, premiering in theaters March 14. Check out the extended Super Bowl trailer below.
