Common Announces New Album “Invincible Summer” Due Out July

There must be something to this acting thing for Common. Ever since the Chicago rapper started devoting more time to Tinseltown, he also suddenly shifted to frenetic work pace with his music. Com is set to deliver yet another album this summer, titled Invincible Summer. The album comes on the heals of his last project, Finding Forever, which spawned the Grammy-nominated collaboration “Southside” featuring Kanye West. Invincible Summer, however, won’t feature production from West, who had become a musical muse to Common.

The two Windy City residents reunited on Com’s BE and Finding Forever. Common gave ‘Ye credit for inspiring him again, but on the new album he decided to go a different route. Mainly because West was busy on his Glow in the Dark tour, Common said he couldn’t get much studio time with the producer. So he instead hooked up with the Neptunes and one-time OutKast contributor Mr. DJ. The result is a more electro-tinged sound reports say, Cee-Lo, Chester French, and Santogold are expected to appear on Invincible Summer. The album is tentatively due in July.

Preliminary Tracklisting:
“Universal Mind Control (U.M.C.)”
“Make My Day” feat. Cee-Lo
“Punch Love”
“What A World” feat. Chester French
“Changes”
“Party Shit”
“Dreaming”
“Runaway” feat. Santogold
