Hip-hop artist, actor, poet, producer, and handsome person Common has just released the third single from his forthcoming album, Pitchfork reports. “Home” features vocals from Bilal, a frequent collaborator and go-to vocalist who has recently hopped on tracks for Kendrick Lamar and Mac Miller, among others. And it’s been a busy day for Common overall, as Deadline announced earlier that he’ll be executive producing a new comedy series called 93 Til Infinity about a fading 1990s rapper. He’ll develop alongside Hamilton director Thomas Kail and How to Make It in America creator Ian Edelman. Common’s 11th studio album, Black America Again, drops on November 4 on Artium/Def Jam, just in time for all of us to get a bit of knowledge before we drop a ballot in the box.
