De La Soul releases crowdfunded 'and the Anonymous Nobody' album

Like many Kickstarter projects, the new De La Soul album took a lot longer to arrive than promised, but now it’s here. Originally scheduled for release in September 2015, the group’s new project carefully avoids the sample clearance hell that has kept their previous work offline. This time, the samples come from jam sessions they recorded with LA-area musicians, keeping the rights in-house. The 17-track and the Anonymous Nobody album features collaborations with Pete Rock, 2 Chainz, Snoop Dogg, Damon Albarn (of Gorillaz), Little Dragon, Estelle and a number of other well-known artists.

Backers should have download links in their inboxes now (open them on a desktop, please — the link expires after it’s clicked), while others can listen via the platforms of their choice: iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Google Play Music or even vinyl, it’s all available via the album release site.
