Microblogging hopefully isn’t the future of artist to fan communicating, but it’s definitely asserting its place in the present. Case in point: over the weekend Lupe Fiasco
that his upcoming album would be called
We Are Lasers
, apparently ditching the concept of
, his three-disc concept album.
According to one of Fiasco’s tweets, "We Are Lasers…comes from some repressed highschool outcast shit…blended amidst And He Gets The Girl ambitions," so it’s something of a bildungsroman then? Frequent Fiasco collaborator Soundtrakk will likely helm the album’s production. Also, if you care about this sort of thing, it looks like Lupe is going to see The Prodigy in New York on March 26. The age of oversharing indeed.
