Kid Cudi is going galactic once again, this time, with a collaboration with sci-fi franchise Star Trek. Star Trek and the artist announced on Thursday (Oct. 5) that the “Day ‘n’ Nite” rapper will be the face of its latest campaign titled “Boldly Be.”

The collaboration is set to launch at New York Comic Con — held at the Javits Center — on Oct. 12, and features a Fortnite gaming experience, streetwear capsule collection and a new song from the rapper titled “Heaven’s Galaxy.” Cudi’s fandom of the franchise inspired “Heaven’s Galaxy,” which was produced by Dot Da Genius. The track will be available on streaming starting on Oct. 12.

The Star Trek x Cudi streetwear collection includes tees, crewnecks, hoodies, a custom button-up T-shirt and a colorful leather varsity jacket. NYCC attendees can hit up Star Trek x Kid Cudi’s booth 2653 to pre-order items from the collab, with the collection dropping on Kid Cudi’s website on Oct. 16.

The Fornite experience, titled Star Trek x Kid Cudi: Mirror Mayhem, will see Cudi stepping into the world of the franchise and the popular video game. “Heaven’s Galaxy” will be in the game, in addition to previously unheard songs from the rapper’s forthcoming album, INSANO. According to the press release, players can “partner with Captain Skyles (Kid Cudi) on a mission to uncover the source of a sonic anomaly that threatens the peaceful planet Vada.” The collab’s NYCC booth will also offer a first look at the gaming experience.

Neil Young's New Album 'FU##IN' UP' Has Live Recordings from Intimate Toronto Venue The Rivoli

FU##IN' UP, the new album by Neil Young & Crazy Horse, features performances of songs from his 1990 album Ragged Glory, recorded live at Toronto's Rivoli, seemingly during a much-rumoured secret show last November. He'll bring his upcoming tour to Toronto's Budweiser Stage in May, 2024.

Canadian icon Neil Young is adding to his immense discography with a new release this spring, a live album titled FU##IN UP'. The album, featuring Young's longtime band Crazy Horse, consists of nine live recordings from 2023 and is set for a limited edition two-LP release this April, in partnership with Record Store Day. According to the album's credits as noticed by Exclaim!, it was recorded at Toronto's Rivoli club, meaning it likely captures Neil Young & Crazy Horse's secret show at the Rivoli last November.

At that show — supposedly a private birthday party for Canada Goose CEO Dani Reiss — according to reports that generated a lot of buzz when they appeared online days later, Young performed most of his 1990 album Ragged Glory. FU##IN' UP features primarily songs from Ragged Glory, with new titles taken from lyric fragments. ("Over and Over," shared as a single, is now "Broken Circle.") The album features performances from Crazy Horse members Billy Talbot on bass, Ralph Molina on drums, and Nils Lofgren and Micah Nelson on guitar and piano, and Reiss is credited as a presenter.
