The Roots to Drop new album April 29th

The Roots 8th full album release and their second release on Def Jam will be entitled “Rising Down” and is inspired by a literary piece called “Rising Up and Rising Down”by William T. Vollmann.

Questlove had this to say about the album:

“We are using a lot of synthesizer, but I don’t know if I could call this the electronic album or not,” Thompson says. “Pretty much five or six songs are done, and four of them are synth-heavy…I know somehow I’m going to find the common thread of all this stuff,” Thompson offers. “I don’t know what to call it, but it’s something.”
