Fans of the Roots have been dying to hear a solo album from frontman Black Thought for years. And for a minute now, we’ve heard titles thrown around like Talented Mr. Trotter and Dangerous Thoughts, the latter of which is his long-in-the-works collaboration with Danger Mouse. While it’s unclear whether either of those albums will actually drop, Black Thought says that he’s indeed working on a solo project. It’s apparently a blues album that he’s recording with artists like Raheem DeVaughn, TV On The Radio’s Tunde Adebimpe, and My Morning Jacket’s Jim James. Man, can this just happen? I’ve thought that dude’s been a slept-on singer for a minute.
You can peep an interview about the album and much more below. [via]
