The best thing about Insano being postponed is that the music artist is making up for the delay with volume. On social media, he revealed that the deluxe album has 40 tracks altogether, which makes Insano Cudi's biggest release to date.

For reference, Entergalactic only had 15 tracks. So while Insano might be coming later, it has enough songs to hold us over until the next time Cudi drops an album.

And that's not all. He's also going on the road with his upcoming release.

"I think I'm going to take a step back from the Kid Cudi stuff and focus a lot more on developing my own things," he explained in an interview with POPSUGAR.

"Writing — whether it's movies or TV shows — producing things, putting stuff together," he added. "Just really getting my production company [Mad Solar] up to a place where, in the next three or four years, we're a household name."

When it comes to everything that Kid Cudi does, he always puts his heart and soul into it. So whether that means returning to music or pursuing movies and TV shows, his fans are just happy he's happy.
