The official “announcement” came today that Common will release a new album in September entitled Invincible Summer, an album which is rumoured to be mostly collaboration between Common and The Neptunes/Pharrell.
The buzz track “UMC – Universal Mind Control” dropped just over a month ago, a nod to the original track by Afrika Bambaataa.
“Announcement” is the albums first official single, also produced by The Neptunes and features Pharrell. Com keeps it simple on this one, with actually a few groaner punch lines, not necessarily his best written performance, but the beat is pretty infectious.
Look out for a future video for this track.http://www.thecyberkrib.com/audio/common_announcement.mp3%20
