Last month, Kid CuDi announced that he will be releasing a prelude EP to his upcoming album Man On The Moon III which should be available within the next three months. Today, an an interview with Music Connection, Cudder has elaborated on his plans of releasing the new album in 2015 which according to him will be the final installment of the Man On The Moon series. See what he had to say about the project below.
MC: There is also much anticipation for another MOTM (Man on the Moon: The End of Day) record. What can we expect from that?
Kid Cudi: Man on the Moon III will show a whole other level of maturity, and it will answer a whole lot of questions. There’s a lot of missing links between MOTM and MOTM II. I also think that they were both very ignorant albums, so I think I’ll eliminate a lot of that ignorance.
You’ll see it coming from a person who is looking at things from a more mature mindset, with more understanding and growth. I want people to be able to put this album on at different points in their lives and grow with me. This series was meant to show me grow as a man and it would not be right to do MOTM III and have me talking about driving drunk. I didn’t want people to listen and feel like, “Oh he’s giving us a lesson,” rather than be entertained, but I’m not condoning that shit, that’s not cool. When I’m singing about driving drunk on “Pursuit of Happiness” on MOTM, you may remember that it was a nightmare. It was meant to be scary, the craziness, the fact that this person chooses to look for happiness in substances; and that’s scary, that’s a terrible combination, that’s a terrible way to go about things.
MOTM III will really be answering the biggest question: Have I found happiness? And it will lead people on in life, because there will not be another MOTM after MOTM III. It will send people off feeling satisfied.
