Kid Cudi has started working on his next album.
The 34-year-old star - whose most-recent solo album is 2016's 'Passion, Pain & Demon Slayin' - has give his fans a clue as to when they can expect his much-anticipated new record to arrive.
In reply to one of his fans searching for new music, he wrote on Twitter: "I just started the new album! Taking my time w it tho but im thinkin next year sometime? Would that be cool? Huh? Tell me? Would that be ok.
"Got some tasty features comin out soon in the meantime. (sic)"
Cudi has recently been working with outspoken rap star Kanye West on their joint album 'Kids See Ghosts', which was released earlier this year.
And Cudi has revealed that he made a conscious decision to adopt a more upbeat tone on the record.
He shared: "I chose to write the light.
"Me and Kanye both agreed that we wanted to create a spiritual album. I know kids are used to hearing me talk about darkness, but I'm living in the light now."
In 2016, Cudi admitted to struggling with depression and checking himself into a rehab facility.
The rapper can still vividly remember his own mindset as he was entering the facility.
He shared: "I was thinking of ways to do it. It scared me straight. What scared me was that my mind was willing to go there. After all these years."
But Cudi has insisted he's now in a much happier place in his life.
He told GQ magazine: "I'm not battling any demons right now. Thank God."
