US hip-hop group De La Soul return in August with a brand new album and the Anonymous Nobody.
Still best known for the critical and commercial high of 1989’s 3 Feet High and Rising, the group raised funds for the new album through a Kickstarter campaign last year.
De La Soul reportedly spent the last few years recording more than 300 hours of live music (bossa nova, soul, hip-hop, funk, disco, reggae) to allow them the freedom to record another sample-based album without the pesky problem of the legalities of sample clearance, since they were effectively sampling themselves. Sounds promising…
The album was produced by De La Soul and Dave West, and features guest appearances include Snoop Dogg, Usher, Damon Albarn, David Byrne, Jill Scott and more. It’s released on 26 August 2016. Listen to TrainWreck below.
