Diddy’s Plans To Drop A Concept Album, “Last Train to Paris,” In September

Posted by uproxx on


Sean “Diddy” Combs has revealed new details of his sixth LP. The album, titled “LAST TRAIN TO PARIS,” is slated to arrive on September 22nd. The LP features what Combs describes as electro-hip-hop soul funk — welcoming in an unexpected mixture of sight and sound. “I’m ushering in a new movement called ‘train music,'” says Combs. “LAST TRAIN TO PARIS” is Diddy’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed 2007 release, “PRESS PLAY.”

“‘LAST TRAIN TO PARIS’ is deeper than any of the other stuff I have ever made. It’s a profound love story. It’s me with my shades off. It’s the truth,” says Combs. Diddy is collaborating with hit-making producers The Dream, Tricky, The Neptunes, Mario Winans, T-Pain and Rodney Jerkins.

I see concept albums are getting more popular, he is even shooting a movie to go along with the CD. I’m expecting a lot of features and autotune on this album along with some hot beats. The rest of the press release is below.

“I have been a businessman for the past two years. It’s time for me to focus on being an artist again,” explains Combs. “I am going to show the world a new refreshing side of me. Get on or get off!”
