Coming off the success of last year’s release, The Roots plan to keep the concept LPs going by dropping one based on orchestrated melodies. So far, two sketch pieces have already been completed and ?uest and Black Thought tell Billboard what we can expect.
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.
