So the long-delayed new album by Erykah Badu is out later this month.
The sequel to 2008’s acclaimed New Amerykah Part One (4th World War), it’s been delayed throughout the year, but now has a solid release date. We think. We hope.
Anyway, those who’ve been reading FACT will know that a track from the record – featuring none other than Lil Wayne – was leaked to the public, complete with video earlier this year. Well fans now have a chance to hear more material from New Amerykah Part Two (Return of the Ankh), in the form of a collaboration with Madlib, titled ‘Strawberry Incense’.
You can stream the track in full on Badu’s website, and what do you know, it’s very good, Badu’s vocals perfectly complimented over a harp-centred production by the Stones Throw man, who himself has released three albums already this year. Or something like that.
Oh, and Badu has also revealed the artwork for Part Two. Here it is:
