Travis Scott, after winning the VMAs for “The Excellence,” is giving music-hungry fans an overview of his upcoming new album that’s designed to inspire his listeners.
In Carine Roitfeld’s new cover feature CR men, A limited-edition collection that will hit platforms in select cities on September 16, La Flame lays out his opinion on what it really means to live in a “utopian country” while also pointing out how to filter those ideas through his lens on a new, aptly titled album The virtuous city.
“Medicine, nursing, being a better person, speaking, language, communicating — you know, a utopian state. That’s what my album is about,” Scott explained in the piece designed by Tom Sacks and Natalie Shakur when speaking The virtuous cityWhich is widely expected to be released before the end of the year. Continuing, Scott thought about the “miserable shit” that defined the past several years and wondered why it had lasted so long.
“You think a utopia is a society where everything is good: health, buildings, architecture — nah. It’s just about the right lines of communication.” “Because this is the miserable nonsense we are in now. All this hate, hate, hate, and it all derives from what? Miscommunication, lack of communication, incomprehensible communication, ignorance of communication.” “I don’t like this person.” Why? Because Someone said to me something I don’t like this person? Because I read in history I don’t like this person? Why?”
