La Flame played an unreleased track for author Gerrick D. Kennedy, which Kennedy claimed was "the craziest thing" he had heard from him, and referred to what he and Cudi have in the vault as "some fireness!"
Chatter around a full-length record from the duo was sparked back in April. More than 12 million concurrent viewers tuned into Fortnite for Travis' trippy Astronomical performance where he premiered the likely lead single for the joint project, "THE SCOTTS."
That was only a warm-up for his next act: Working with director Christopher Nolan on a song for his upcoming spy thriller Tenet. Nolan explained that the 28-year-old's "voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle."
He continued, "His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound."
Late Tuesday night, Travis shared with fans that he'd be dropping that very song, called "The Plan," this Friday. (“Travis mix 16” was the working title at the time of the interview.)
Maybe this is part of Travis's larger plan to help people find relief during these "weird" times, as he said he's "motivated" to "change stuff," especially in his native Houston.
Ideally, he wants to create a "utopia" where "we don't want nothing from each other but just to see each other happy." For now, he's talking to Mayor Sylvester Turner about bringing back the city's fabled AstroWorld theme park that shut down in 2005.
