Recently heard that Dr. Dre decided to make an instrumental album about the planets. Definitely excited for this, but it seems like more of a Sufjan move than a Dre move. Although Sufjan would probably just come out with one brilliant album called “Venus” and then promise 7 more planet themed albums(plus a Pluto bonus disk) on limited edition vinyl, and then never deliver.
“I want to call it The Planets. I don’t even know if I should be saying this, but fuck it. It’s just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I’m gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I’ve been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I’ve been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It’ll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.” – Dr. Dre.
Well of course Saturn would have to be listened to in surround sound…logically.
Despite this seemingly flawless plan i have some questions:
How do y’all think Dre “studied” for this?
Wikipedia? Discovery channel special? Drugz?
Which planetary track do you think would be the dopest and most ‘club ready’?
Are there any other elementary school science subjects that you would rather see Dre make music about? Dinosaurs? Biomes?
Do you hope that this album comes with some sort of planetary diorama?
Which planet do you think best represents Dre?
Which planet do you think best represents Sufjan
