The Roots To Premiere New Track On Jimmy Fallon Tonight

The Roots are using their late-night TV gig on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon as a forum to preview their upcoming album, How I Got Over.

Billboard reports that the show’s house band will debut the socially aware title track from their ninth studio LP on tonight’s (June 24) broadcast. The song’s official music video is slated for an early July release.

Back in April, Black Thought spoke with XXLMag.com about the disc, named after a Mahalia Jackson gospel record.“It’s a more celebratory album,” the lead MC said, “the story of triumph and the rise of the brand that is ‘The Roots,’ and how we kept our heads above water consistently for so many years in the game without taking a hiatus, maintaining some love and relevancy for all this time.”

Fans can also catch the band this summer on the Rock The Bells tour, as well as weekly residencies in Atlantic City and New York.

How I Got Over hits stores on October 20 via Def Jam Recordings. –John Kennedy

      I choose to disagree and I may be biased since I’m from Philly. I loved “Rising Down”

        I still have yet to listen to that album. Last album I got from them was Game Theory and I only listened to it once…Tipping Point Still my ish

  • Mutada al sader the king

    ^ Yep, no one ever wants to admit that. No one would dare gore the sacred cow that is “live hip hop music”, to admit the Roots have not done anything interesting for years now.

    Although QuestLOVE is a B.E.A.S.T

    Young School take notes again. Ya’ll been fucking up the game. All that new country shit is headache. Roots bring Eduacation to the table. Make money like the rest of them Rappers.
