D'Angelo And Erykah Badu Are Appearing On A Song Together This Year
There’s a catch: the song is on an album that is only being released on vinyl.
The artist will be releasing his debut album Slingbaum One this year, and it includes three songs — one of which features both D’Angelo and Badu.
The song is titled “Behoove,” as shown on the artist’s website. There are other notable names a part of the track, including Jameel Bruner (Thundercat’s younger brother), Chris Dave, Justin Brown (frequent drummer for Thundercat), Keyon Harrold and Amani Fela Greene.
The other two tracks — “Strangers” and “Morphine” — features FKA Twigs, Oumou Sangaré, and Nick Hakim, and Damon Albarn, Bilal, and Syd, respectively. According to Slingbaum’s website, the album is 16 minutes long.
However, there is a catch for the forthcoming album: it is only being released on vinyl.
“SLINGBAUM ONE WILL ONLY BE AVAILABLE IN THIS PREORDER. THERE ARE CURRENTLY NO OTHER PLANS TO DISTRIBUTE ELSEWHERE BEYOND THIS SHORT PRE-SALE WINDOW, WHETHER DIGITAL (STREAMING) OR PHYSICAL,” a statement reads on the artist’s website. “ORDERS WILL ARRIVE APPROXIMATELY MAY, 2020.”
The vinyl, which is running for $40, can be purchased here.
Not much is known about the album. Badu posted on Instagram about it, referring to the project as “A Musical Horror Picture.”
