The Roots new album is out. Go check it out. Nothing else needs to be said, right? Well I’m going to say more anyway. They’ve been around since 1987 bringing sounds of Funk, Hip Hop, and Soul music to our ears. They were originally called The Square Roots. Over the years The Roots have released 14 albums/EPs, won several Grammys as well as other awards, and collaborated with many artists. That is stating their accomplishments in a very short list. In 2009 they became the house band of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Their new album, titled Undun, is about a character named Redford Stephens. He lives in a urban setting and ends up choosing a life of crime because that is what makes sense to him given his circumstances. The music of Sufjan Stevens also appears on this album. The Roots interpret and cover his song titled “Redford” in four parts for a powerful ending.
