The Roots to Release Orchestral Album

The Legendary Roots Crew follow up a great Roots picnic by announcing via Billboard that the Philadelphia band is working on another concept album. This will be the follow up to 2010’s How I Got Over and it will be the bands first full fledged concept album.

“This is going to be our first full-fledged narrative concept album. It’s a one-word title that’s spelled incorrectly…what a way to tease you, right? It’s going to be heavy on sort of orchestral chamber music with harder beats in it.”

Black Thought added that conceptually, the album will stem from the “same idea” as “How I Got Over,” but “kind of flipped. Instead of from dark to light, it’s an album that goes from light to dark,” he explained.
