Common’s 9th studio album The Dreamer, The Believer came out in December 2011 but he isn’t planning to take a vacation yet. Com Sense tells MTV that he’s writing a new album right now which is due to release in January of 2013. No I.D. and Kanye West are two of the producers he plans to work with.
“I am writing a new album. It will be coming out in January, and I’m looking forward to that. My stuff will come at the top of the year maybe some songs out there on the street level, I’m going to work with No I.D. and looking to hopefully work with Kanye [West] and that’s some of the major people I’ll be working with, and whatever other great talents that I feel are going that direction that I want the album to be.”
