?uestlove recently revealed details about The Roots next LP to Billboard, trying something they haven’t done in year’s past.
“This is going to be our first full-fledged narrative concept album,” ?uestlove told Billboard. “It’s going to be a challenge to figure out how to get from point A to B — or in this case, point B to point A, and have it seem natural.
“It’s going to be heavy on sort of orchestral chamber music with harder beats in it…,” he added. “I did this project called the Philly-Paris Lockown, which was sort of a period of French music from Debussy to Satie and Stravinsky…it was almost like the dawning of jazz in the early 1900s,” suggesting the event would influence the sound on the new record.
“In a perfect world it would come out in November, but in this world that we live in, maybe January? Maybe February? I don’t know, but hopefully it’s gonna be in a timely fashion.”
As for the album’s name? “It’s a one-word title that’s spelled incorrectly…what a way to tease you, right?”
