The Boy Who Flew to the Moon (Vol. 1) was announced mere days before its release, with Cudi unveiling the career-spanning comp’s tracklist shortly after. Opening the comp, fittingly, is Cudi’s breakout single “Day ‘n’ Nite (Nightmare).” Amid the rollout, Cudi also revealed that A Kid Named Cudi—his 2008 mixtape—would later this month be receiving a streaming release.

In a tweeted statement overnight, Cudi said the 18-track comp represents a “much-needed reminder” of all that he’s accomplished thus far.
“The ups, the downs, the return, my rise again. One hell of ride,” he said. “Who knows what the next 14 years has in store for me. I promise it won’t be boring.”
In June, Cudi announced his To the Moon global tour, which is set to hit 27 cities this year starting with Vancouver in August. Enlisted as support for the trek are Don Toliver, Strick, 070 Shake, and Denzel Curry.
But that’s far from the only thing Cudi fans have to look forward to in the coming months. In September, the Moon Man’s Landing festival will hit Cleveland. That same month, Entergalactic will debut on Netflix.
