Diddy Crafts Concept Album
February 19, 2009


Diddy

Sean "Diddy" Combs is putting his Rapper hat back on for his sixth LP, Last Train To Paris, which is slated to arrive at the station on September 22. The album is a high concept piece that Diddy describes as electro-Hip Hop Soul Funk. He is collaborating with producers such as The Dream, Tricky, The Neptunes, Mario Winans, T-Pain and Rodney Jerkins for his new sound.

"I'm ushering in a new movement called 'train music'," Diddy explained. "Last Train To Paris is deeper than any of the other stuff I have ever made. Itís a profound love story. Itís me with my shades off. Itís the truth.
I've been a businessman for the past two years. Itís time for me to focus on being an artist again. I am going to show the world a new refreshing side of me."

He elaborated to MTV News that the album tells the story of a "tumultuous love roller-coaster relationship." The story of the album starts when Diddy's character and his two female bandmates go on tour overseas, where he meets the woman of his dreams.
"I'm infatuated with her, really blown away," he told MTV. "We wind up spending the night together. I never get her name. When I wake up, she's gone. A couple of months go by, and I bump into her again on tour overseas. We get together, and she's attached to my hip. She's on my hip for three months. I tell her to come to New York, Miami, all the places where I get it poppin'. You know how men pop shit, like men do sometimes when they're trying to make a woman fall in love."

Of course the relationship goes awry, and Diddy's character has one chance to make things right. But the story will not only be told in an album ó he is planning a short film to go along with it, and a DVD of the movie will be included with the CD.

"The movie is more of visual presentation. You know how, when you on your computer and you're listening to an album, you have your screen-saver on ó instead of screen save, you'll be able to see the album in motion," Diddy said. "And the presentation of the album will be different from the videos. I'm out here in L.A. right now, meeting with directors. I'm looking for somebody who can do it within the budget and do it guerrilla style."
