Below, listen to the first new song, “When The People Cheer” from the forthcoming Roots album, …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin. No date has been announced for the release of the album yet, however, Okayplayer did call it a “concept LP/anti-rap opera” album. Greg Porn leads off the song, then Black Thought steps in with his “existential rhymes” over Questlove’s always on point drumming. Check it out below, and don’t miss The Roots Picnic on Saturday, May 31st.
Update: Questlove announced on his instagram that the new Roots album will be released on May 13th.
