Kid Cudi  plans to "bring punk rock back with a whole energy and sound" with the first single from WZRD, his alt-rock collaboration with "Day 'n' Nite" producer Dot Da Genius.
On Tuesday (Nov. 22), Cudi debuted the first single from WZRD's upcoming album, titled "Break." "Break" showcases Cudi half-singing like a spaced out Lenny Kravitz  over guitar-heavy synths.
The duo, originally called 2 Be Contnuum, changed their name to WZRD, and are planning to drop the record on Jan. 30 (Cudi's birthday), according to Cudi's Twitter timeline . Cudi also noted that the record "does not contain any profanity or the usage of the word 'n*gga.' [It's] a universal album for everyone."
