It’s been a little over a year since Kid Cudi’s eighth and most recent album “Entergalactic”. For the past few months he’s been speculating and implying retirement is a goal for him soon, and his recording contract with Republic Records stipulated a total of nine albums.

Insano” is the ninth, and potentially final part of that contract. Most of the songs had been worked on for several years, and the album had a protracted release schedule. It was initially announced for release in the summer of 2023, then moved back to September 15, which was the 15 year anniversary for his first album.

The record was pushed back yet again to January 12, 2024. Around the same time, Cudi announced that American visual artist KAWS would be designing one of the four cover variants.

Just ahead of its release, Cudi revealed one more surprise for fans. Signed copies of “Insano” vinyl records would be available for a limited time. All of the signed “Insano” records used the KAWS cover.

Signed “Insano” vinyl records were available for sale at 9 P.M. Pacific on January 11. They were exclusive to Cudi’s online store, and cost $38. Customers were limited to four records per order.

This was a very, very popular release. After a long wait and a collaboration with streetwear darling KAWS, getting one of these records with Cudi’s signature on it was very appealing to his fans. All of the signed “Insano” vinyl records were sold out within five minutes.
