Dr. Dre, astronomy buff, working on "music of the spheres" instrumental concept album

In an interview with Vibe, rap mogul Dr. Dre reveals that he is working on an instrumental album to be titled "The Planets."

It's just my interpretation of what each planet sounds like. I'm gonna go off on that. Just all instrumental. I've been studying the planets and learning the personalities of each planet. I've been doing this for about two years now just in my spare time so to speak. I wanna do it in surround sound. It'll have to be in surround sound for Saturn to work.
