Kid Cudi’s third album Indicud is on the way, but in the meantime Cudder drops a freebie for the fans. “Immortal” samples MGMT’s “Congratulations” and it finds the eccentric rapper spitting about his ‘powers’ and, well, felling immortal.

“Ok, so heres what I did. I took one of my favorite bands MGMT’s song “Congratulations”, put it in reverse, sped it up, and produced over it,” Cudi explained to fans on Twitter after debuting the song, noting that it was self-produced. “Thank You so much to MGMT for clearing the sample. LOVE YOU GUYS!!”

He then proceeded to retweet feedback from fans, adding, “TRENDING 3 TIMES!!! WE’RE ALL IMMORTAL TONIGHT. MIDDLE FINGER TO THE HATERS AND DOUBTERS. LOVE YOURSELVES AND KEEP BELIEVING IN YOU!”

Indicud is due on April 23 with features from Kanye West, Pusha T, Jaden Smith, Kendrick Lamar and more. Indicud will be the follow-up to 2010’s Man on the Moon II: The Legend of Mr. Rager.
