Travis Scott has a lot up his sleeve, and the rapper is now teasing some of it in a new interview with GQ for their new "Change Is Good" themed issue.

Towards the very end of the interview Scott confirmed that he has been working on a joint album with Kid Cudi, who he has collaborated with many times throughout the years, most recently on "The Scotts." Scott tells GQ that he and Cudi have "already cut a bunch of records together" and said of what to expect from the project, "Man, a lot. Some fireness!"

GQ's Gerrick D. Kennedy, who profiled the star for the publication, got to hear one of the songs which didn't have a title at the time, but according to Kennedy, "it's the craziest thing he's played for me so far." On the track, Scott sings, "I know where I'm going/ I know when it's time."

Travis also briefly talked about the followup to his hit 2018 album Astroworld, which featured fan favorites like "Butterfly Effect" and "Sicko Mode." He's been working on new music throughout lockdown and explained, "I feel like I've learned so much. I think with this next project I'm just embodying all of the knowledge I've taken in and trying to make the best form of it."

Elsewhere in the interview, Scott teased the track he contributed to the upcoming film Tenet from Christopher Nolan, and Kennedy described the song as "a brain-liquefying trip through time and space."

Nolan himself said of Scott, "His voice became the final piece of a yearlong puzzle. His insights into the musical and narrative mechanism [composer] Ludwig Göransson and I were building were immediate, insightful, and profound."

As for the movie, Scott teased, "I can't even explain it. You literally just have to watch it. It's very fire."
