The Roots “undun” Album
On December 6th The Roots will release their new LP “undun” on Island Def Jam. A sort of novel in audio form, “undun” is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). The record explores “the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out on the corner,” beginning with Redford’s death and moving backwards in time to deconstruct all that has led to his coming “undun”. Over the last few weeks The Roots have been leaking the lyrics from the albums tracks in order to give you an idea of story behind the album. The powerful album cover comes from renowned photographer and The New Order Issue 3 contributor Jamal Shabazz. Be sure to pick up a copy next month.
