Despite the lack of radio spins, Kid Cudi is determined to see that his third album is heard. At midnight he debuted “Immortal,” a song that flips and speeds up MGMT’s “Congratulations” — and what may be his strongest single off Indicud yet. Check it out after the jump.
“I tried to tell all of my friends when I was a kid that I had powers. Nobody believed me,” he says in “Immortal.” On Twitter, he was far more succinct.
TRENDING 3 TIMES!!! WE’RE ALL IMMORTAL TONIGHT. MIDDLE FINGER TO THE HATERS AND DOUBTERS. LOVE YOURSELVES AND KEEP BELIEVING IN YOU!

Whether this particular bunch of “haters and doubters” includes his label Republic, Kid Cudi did not say. Indicud, also featuring Kendrick Lamar and G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Pusha T, is out April 23.
