Default The Roots undun cover+tracklist




1) Sleep
2) Make My ft. Big K.R.I.T.
3) One Time
4) Kool On
5) The Jump
6) Stomp
7) Lighthouse
8 ) I Remember
9) Tip The Scale
10) Redford

The Roots’ first ever concept album will be released on December 6th, with its first single “Make My” featuring Def Jam labelmate Big K.R.I.T. dropping on iTunes November 1st.
undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
“At this point in our career we’d like for our work to have a unifying theme, and an experiential quality,” says Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson, 40. “We’ve been intentionally making our albums shorter in length so that they can be experienced as a continuous work. The music is band-oriented with an eye on the moody cinematic. As a DJ, I am the King of playlists, but I don’t want our albums to feel like a playlist or a mixtape for that matter. We want to tell stories that work within the album format and we want the stories to be nuanced and useful to people. undun is the story of this kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn’t born criminal. He’s not the nouveau exotic primitive bug-eyed gunrunner like Tupac’s character Bishop in “Juice”… he’s actually thoughtful and is neither victim nor hero. Just some kid who begins to order his world in a way that makes the most sense to him at a given moment… At the end of the day… isn’t that what we all do?”

The Roots are always dope. Game Theory is my personal favourite, but this could surpass all my expectations. Can't wait!

Illadelph Halflife used to be mine, but it's a whole lot more boring than Game Theory.

really feeling both singles from the album so far, reminds me of the same style they had on "How I Got Over" which is really fine with me since i loved that album. it will be interesting to hear Black Thought on a full concept album for sure
