Common is returning to music after a two-year hiatus.

“I’m excited to announce the release date of my latest musical project, A Beautiful Revolution Part 2, coming out September 10,” he tweeted Wednesday. “Pre-order and pre-save it here.”

This will be the Oscar- and Grammy-winner’s 13th studio album following Let Love in 2019.

The 49-year-old entertainer has been extremely busy with several upcoming acting projects, including a role in the forthcoming thriller Alice, starring Keke Palmer as an enslaved woman who believes it’s the 1800s but escapes her captors and discovers it’s actually the 1970s.

As previously reported, “The Light” rapper also will appear with Stevie Wonder and several more stars at the seventh annual Stand Up for Cancer telethon airing this Saturday on all major networks, including ABC, as well as major streaming platforms, starting at 8 p.m. ET.

Common is also executive-producing a new documentary series Justice, USA that will take an “in-depth and unflinching look at the U.S. criminal justice system.” He says he is “proud of this series because it takes an honest look at the criminal justice system and highlights its need for reform.”
