A new Erykah Badu mixtape has been shared featuring some of her favorite recordings, describing the set as “carefully and lovingly selected high frequency tones for the soul.” What that entails is a set of mostly-vintage funk, soul and jazz, including Gary Bartz NTU Troop’s “Drinking Song,” a bit of RAMP, a touch of slowed-down Eddie Kendricks (aka a proper J Dilla nod), and much, much more. Ms. Badu had this to say about the mix–which she’s entitled FEEL BETTER, WORLD! … LOVE, MS.BADU–when she uploaded it Friday evening:
ALL OVER THE GLOBE…KEEP WALKING TALL BROTHERS AND SISTERS. SOMEDAY WE WILL ALL BE FREE. THE WORLD IS IN NEED OF HEALING…. I CAREFULLY AND LOVINGLY SELECTED HIGH FREQUENCY TONES FOR THE SOUL…. PLEASE LISTEN FROM TOP TO BOTTOM.
LOVE, ms. badu
Listen to it in full below. And from all of us to Badu: thank you.
