Kid Cudi’s latest track, which he released on SoundCloud Tuesday, is basically an advice column set to the sound of distorted electric guitars: “All of the stories the hero gets lonely,” he sings in “love.” “Now is the time to show what you’re made of.”

The track, produced by Cudi himself, samples Ratatat’s “Sunblocks” and includes comforting, simple lyrics like “you’ll be okay, you’ll find real love.” “Hope it brings you some peace if you have a lonely heart out there,” Cudi wrote on the SoundCloud page. And apparently it has: Since the track debuted, Cudi’s been retweeting fans who’ve said things like, “thank you for not making me feel alone after this greatness” and “I’ve been so down, and you gave me the motivation to keep pushing forward.”
