Common to release new album this March
'The Dreamer, The Believer' features Nas and John Legend and is out on March 5
The album will be put out on Warner Bros Records and sees the hip-hop star working with No ID, who produced his first three albums: 1992's 'Can I Borrow A Dollar?', 1994's 'Resurrection' and 'One Day It'll All Make Sense' (1997).
The album will also feature vocals from John Legend, who appears on the track 'The Believer', which is described as a "musical reimagining of the lyrics Common controversially recited before the President and Mrs Obama at a White House poetry slam in May 2011". Meanwhile, Nas features on the track ‘Ghetto Dreams'.
Of the album Common has said: "When I was a little kid, everyone said I was a dreamer. Once I started realising those dreams, I made myself into a believer. It's really about seeing something you want and making it real. That's the journey I want listeners to take with me on this album."
