To call it “long-awaited” or “eagerly anticipated” would be the understatement of the year – as hip-hop’s most daring pioneers The Roots release their 9th studio album on June 22nd, How I Got Over. The album, which takes its name from Clara Ward’s gospel classic (made popular by Mahalia Jackson), is The Roots first new release since joining Late Night with Jimmy Fallon for a full time gig as the show’s house band. The Grammy Award winners characterise the songs on the album as “depicting the everyman’s search for hope in this dispiriting post-hope zeitgeist”. 

Be sure to pick up a copy of “How I Got Over” from 22nd June.
