The Roots are determined to make this final weekend of April a pleasant one with the drop of “Tomorrow,” the second track to be revealed from their upcoming studio album ...and then you shoot your cousin. The Roots “Tomorrow” features the DMV’s own Raheem DeVaughn. The fellas already gave you a taste of what they had been brewing with the Hot97 debut of “When The People Cheer,” but this here serves as a follow up course, bringing some new flavors to the table to prep ya for the full course (Monday May 19th). “Tomorrow” drops out the low-end all together, letting the hopeful piano-driven ballad bop with faint whispers and DeVaughn’s affectionate croon.
Its just the beginning of what is shaping up to be a hefty rollout for the highly anticipated concept album, marking over two decades of road glory and innovation (and now Late Night shenanigans). …&TYSYC will be available everywhere May 19th on Def Jam, but you can pre-order your copy (CD or Vinyl) over at MyPlayDirect today with signed posters and t-shirts, but be sure to keep your eyes out for some of our own bundles in the days to come over at the Okayplayer shop on May 1. If you’re in the tristate area, come rock with The Roots crew as this year’s Roots Picnic, where you’ll find them backing Snoop Dogg for what is sure to be some hazy funk at Festival Pier in Philly on May 31st. Listen to the latest from the boys below and be sure to keep it locked as we’ll have plenty more on …&TYSYC as we creep up to its release.
