"The life story of an immigrant," he said when explaining the theme behind the new record. "It's for everyone who has had to leave one place and adapt to another. It's about the refugee in all of us trying to fit in. But it's not all sorrowful. In life, there is love and hate, war and peace. It's both sides. This is the continuation of my music and it represents both sides. It's for all my fans. It's for those who love me for 'Gone 'Til November' and 'Hips Don't Lie,' too."
The album's first single will be the already-leaked 'Election Time' and the entire EP should be hitting digital retailers on Dec. 7.
