UPDATE: Q-Tip just took to Instagram to unveil the new cover artwork for We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service. Check it out underneath the original copy.
As we creep closer and closer to A Tribe Called Quest‘s final outing, details of the long mythologized release are coming forth piece-by-piece. Yesterday in a New York Times profile piece helmed by the one and only Toure, we finally learned the name of the new album (and first in 18 years): We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service. In the same piece, the album’s star-studded roster was revealed, confirming the presence of all four tribesman along with helping hands from Andre 3000, Kendrick Lamar, Jack White and Elton John amongst others.
Today we get our first look at the album’s cover art, courtesy of Complex. Those well traveled on the paths of rhythm will immediately notice the iconic Low End Theory figure kneeling in the bottom left corner, Tribe’s classic green-glow logo stamped at the top and then, oddly enough (and perhaps even poking fun at the times,) a naked woman taking a selfie of it all in the bottom right corner. There’s still no pre-order available for the final A Tribe Called Quest album, but We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service is slated to arrive next Friday, November 11th via Epic Records.
Here’s hoping we get something in the way of a single ahead of the release. In the meantime, you can peep the album art below. Head over to The Shop for all of your Tribe vinyl needs.
