Karriem Riggins Announces Sophomore Solo Album 'The Head-Nod Suite'
Still unpacking our feature interview with the young gawd, Karriem Riggins? Don’t worry you’re not alone. But if you did happen to make your way even halfway through the piece, you’d quickly realize that Riggins is getting ready to cap off his most visible and prolific year to date (collaborating with the likes of Kaytranada and Kanye West on top of his work with Common on Black America Again) in the best way possible: a new solo record.
Riggins confirmed to us that not only was his follow-up to the brilliant 2012 solo debut Alone Together on the way, but would be arriving within the next couple months. The album will be titled The Headnod Suite and will bring the spotlight back to his off-kilter swing and supreme chop styles in a “very beat-driven album.” Though a precise release date has yet to be revealed, it’ll serve as the beginning of a new phase for the Detroit heavyweight. And we can’t wait to see what’s next. For now, get acquainted with his work on Black America Again, alongside legends like Robert Glasper and Stevie Wonder.
Keep it locked for updates on his next project and revisit our feature interview with Karriem Riggins to try and keep up.
