Common is set to release his new album, ‘The Dreamer, The Believer’, in the UK 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.”
