Former G.O.O.D Music artist Kid Cudi has announced plans to release a new EP in the near future called Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon.
While Cudder broke the news Monday (November 25), he did not offer up an exact release date.
“KiD CuDi presents SATELLITE FLIGHT: The journey to Mother Moon coming soon,” Cudi tweeted November 25.
“Thats the title of the EP fyi. Lets dream again”

Cudi recently raised eyebrows after receiving some prominent onscreen time in a new Need for Speed movie trailer.
In the film, Aaron Paul, from “Breaking Bad,” plays Tobey Marshall, a street racer who is unfairly imprisoned for a crime that he didn’t commit (one that results in the death of his best friend). Upon release from prison, he decides to get revenge on the man who wronged him, which of course involves driving really sexy cars at really dangerous speeds. Dominic Cooper is the bad guy, Kid Cudi and Rami Malek are his buddies, Imogen Poots is the love interest (rocking a wonderfully white trash wig), and Michael Keaton plays some kind of ring leader of an underground racing circuit. Quite frankly — what is there not to love? (Moviefone)
Outside of films, Cudi recently said his forthcoming Man on the Moon 3 release should help spark awareness and promote better decision-making.
“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 sh*T, 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.” (Music Connection)
Earlier this year, Cudi talked about his break-up with G.O.O.D Music and revealed making sure to let ex-boss Kanye West know he wanted to maintain a strong relationship.
“I overthink sh– all the time. I’m just emotional,” he added, laughing. Cudi broke the news to fans early in April, saying that he’d even reached out to Jay-Z for advice on how to broach the subject with Kanye, but once it was done with, there were no hard feelings and he and ‘Ye still have plans to work together. “In the last email he sent me, he was just like, ‘Yo, come out to Paris and work,’ but I gotta go shoot ‘Need for Speed’ first,” he continued. “I’ma handle that and hopefully he’s still working because I got some time in between so I might jet out and go check him, play him some beats that I been working on. Now that I know he might need my help I might go in the studio and actually try to make some beats with him in mind and see what comes outta that.” (MTV)
