The Roots have shared another new song, “Tomorrow,” from their forthcoming album, …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. The album is out on May 13th. R&B singer Raheem DeVaughn grabs all the spotlight on this mid-tempo feel good song. Based on a simple piano chord progression and a beat that falls just short of a breezy reggae tune, the song has no rapping at all. The beginning of “Tomorrow” opens up some whistling and a lilt that begs comparisons to Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry, Be Happy,” with the sentiment of Bob Marley’s “Three Little Birds.”

Listen to “Tomorrow,” today, below. The Roots’ host the 7th Annual Roots Picnic on May 31st at the Festival Pier with Janelle Monaé, War On Drugs, Action Bronson, Rudimental, a DJ set from Biz Markie, A$AP Ferg, Jhené Aiko, araabMUZIK, Just Blaze, Bad Rabbits, Chill Moody, and more.
