Common‘s eighth studio album, Universal Mind Control, has officially hit store shelves. Though his new style of hip hop has left some critics (including both of his hometown newspapers, the Tribune and the Sun-Times) unimpressed, the Booth is withholding judgment until Wednesday, when our very own Nathan S. will offer his take. In the meantime, we present a previously unreleased remix of the album’s second track, Punch Drunk Love. While all three original verses are retained, Kanye West‘s guest hook is redone by Common, and The Neptunes replace the original’s chaotic beat with a more laid-back production that includes background vocals from Pharrell. For those whose ears can easily adapt, roll it over to your local record store or online retailer and pick up your own copy of Universal Mind Control.
