Travis Scott & Kid Cudi have a Collaborative Album and ‘Tenet’ Track coming sonon. Scott is featured in a GQ interview from Gerrick D.
Kennedy taken from the publication’s Change Is Good-themed new issue. In it, Scott shares his thoughts on a number of pertinent 2020 issues, as well as shows off a protoype of something new he’s working on that’s described here only as “redacted.”
On the topic of Tenet, which Scott has seen and dubbed “fire,” the piece features some brief words from Nolan on just how important Scott’s contributions were to him during the creative process.
“His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle,” the director tells me over email. “His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound.” At the time the interview was conducted, the track in question remained nameless.
As for new music he’s been working on during the COVID-19 era, Scott did indeed offer some insight regarding what will be his first new solo full-length since the gargantuan Astroworld, as well as more to come with his recent “The Scotts” collaborator Kid Cudi.
On what’s next, Scott said he’s “learned so much” since Astroworld.
“I think with this next project I’m just embodying all of the knowledge I’ve taken in and trying to make the best form of it,” he said.
And toward the end of the interview, Kennedy is treated to a new Cudi-featuring song described here as “the craziest thing” heard during the writer’s time with La Flame. Scott doesn’t offer much details on what he and Cudi have in the cards, other than to vow that “some fireness” is on the way and to confirm that they have indeed been working on a joint album from which multiple songs are already in the bag.
