Kid Cudi hasn’t released new material in a while — it’s been well over a year and a half after he dropped Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon. The dry streak ended on Friday night when Kid Cudi finally dropped the lead single for Speedin’ Bullet to Heaven.
My 1st single “CONFUSED” from my upcoming album SPEEDIN BULLET TO HEAVEN is comin anyyyy minute. Stay tunedddddddd 😈

“Confused” still finds Kid Cudi in his rock star lane, pushing his sobered, dry vocals over a simplistic chord progression. He’s still straying away from hip-hop, but this single is far more accessible than his work on Satellite Flight. “Confused” is a personal track, too: “I hate the drugs but I love the numb/ I hate the gun but I want the sun.”
There’s still no release date for Speedin’ Bullet to Heaven, but it’s very likely Kid Cud could release it as a surprise like his last project. This time he’s teamed up with the production crew he’s worked with since his debut album: Plain Pat, Dot Da Genius and Emile Haynie. Kid Cudi also announced that there will be no features on the upcoming album, so expect to hear a lot more crooning from him.
