Fall Out Boy’s Neptunes Track Revealed, Album Pushed Back “Dec. 16th”

It’s been bumped from an original release on November 4 to December 16 — not, apparently, to accommodate Wentz’s bonding time with his firstborn but because the deliberate clash with US election day was deemed twee in hindsight. ‘‘I perceived it as a gimmick, a cute thing,” Wentz says. ‘‘We were going to make ‘Vote for Fall Out Boy’ T-shirts. But that seemed a bit cheap. So we decided to push it back. Our label wanted it out next year, we wanted it out this year, so now it’s out two weeks before Christmas. We’ll see how it goes. The election is more important than our record. If our record suffers for that, that’s OK.” The move has caused huge drama in Fall Out Boy land, upsetting eager fans and messing with their record company’s lucrative pre-Christmas release schedule.

Lil’ Wayne isn’t the only hip hop identity on Folie. Rumoured guest Kanye West was too busy working on his new record but the band have written and produced a song W.A.M.S. with Pharrell Williams. ‘‘High school and celebrity are not that far removed,” Wentz explains. ‘‘The uncool kids are still uncool and Pharrell is one of those people who can make the uncool so cool it’s unbelievable. He did that. He’s a like-minded soul. It’s definitely a Fall Out Boy song with that Pharrell spice on it.” Wentz says Fall Out Boy learnt a lot from the way Williams rolls. ‘‘For starters you don’t have to get up at 10am to start working. Pharrell thinks outside the box. It’s not white, it’s not black, it’s not hip hop, it’s not rock. It’s this world he has created for himself. He’s a tastemaker, the frontman of this snowball of ideas.” They wrote their song while watching Barack Obama’s speech at the Democratic National Convention in August. ‘‘You can’t beat that,” Wentz says. ‘‘It was strange watching Pharrell watching the speech. One day I’ll tell my grandkids about this. Maybe.”

John Legend’s “Aim High” On Deluxe Edition ?

Back in February, Legend invited people to hang out with him at a recording studio in Atlanta, where he gave an exclusive preview of several tracks that suggested Evolver was shaping up to be a decidedly sexier album for the soulful singer-songwriter. But as it turns out, many of those songs — including seductive grooves produced by Rich Harrison (“The Only One“) and Pharrell Williams (“Aim High“) — didn’t make the final cut. “We ended up doing so many new songs that things got bumped,” says KawanKPPrather, who co-produced Evolver with Legend. “It just came down to what made the best body of work.” So, will fans ever get to hear any of those fabulous unreleased tracks, perhaps on a Deluxe Edition of Evolver to be released at a later date? “If that were to be the case,” says KP, whose production credits on the album include the current single, “Green Light,” featuring André 3000, “we have the material all ready to go.”

More News About “Universal Mind Control” Credits

Here is the official tracklist of Common’sUniversal Mind Control” and some more infos about the album such as “Punch Drunk Love” now features Kanye West spitting the catchy chorus “Am I crazy, or was you giving me the eye? (aka The Eye)” “Sex 4 Sugar,” which Common previously described as a conversation with a dancer, now has faster drums, and “Everywhere,” which was formerly called “Runaway” and set to feature Santogold, now sports a dreamy layered chorus, sans Santogold, over a guitar riff similar to Pat Benatar’sLove Is A Battlefield.” The album’s production is still split between The Neptunes and Outkast cohort Mr. DJ. The ten-song disc (with a potential bonus cut in the form of a remix to “Punch Crunk Love”) finds Common going for a more fun vibe after realizing that his own DJ didn’t have any Common songs to play in the club. While those that have heard the singles may be bracing themselves for Electric Circus part 2, Common is quick to stress that while he still loves that album, he’s going for something entirely different.

He was quick to say that he “would never repeat an album I did before” and believes Universal Mind Control to be far more accessible and while “The Eye” has become “Punch Drunk Love” due to Kanye insisting that he get on the track, the original version is now being called the Remix and Com wants to included it on the record as well as a bonus cut. “Inhale.” It’s a classic strings/synths Neptunes beat and includes Chad scratching a sample from Tribe’sSucka Nigga.” The next video may end up being “Gladiator” record, but there’s a treatment for “Changes” (prod. Mr DJ) floating around as well. Common wants to shoot plenty of videos for the album to match its visual aethetic and thanks to his increasingly successful movie career, he feels more freedom than ever to explore the potential for his music.  If this is what we get as a result of his acting, then here’s hoping Terminator 4 opens huge. Thanks To 30th Century Man.
