Listen: WZRD – “Brake”

By way of Twitter, Kid Cudi and producer Dot Da Genius, known together as the newly-dubbed WZRD, revealed the very first single from the yet-to-be-named rock album. Set for a January 30 release date (Cudder’s 28th birthday), the upcoming album will have no profanity and will have a very uplifting sound. Today’s preview, titled “Brake”, has a completely different vibe from the previously leaked, woozy-sounding “Perfect Is The Word” (listen here). Heavily driven by hazy guitars, booming drums, and Cudi’s distinctive voice, “Brake” actually sounds pretty dark and brooding, perhaps even psychedelic at times.
