Stream De La Soul’s New ‘And the Anonymous Nobody…’ Album
After a crowdfunding campaign and a few album delays, De La Soul have finally released their new album, and the Anonymous Nobody..., the group's first in almost a dozen years. In the weeks leading up to the album drop, the trio has been releasing tracks such as "Greyhounds" featuring Usher and "Pain" with Snoop Dogg, with the full 17 tracks available today via iTunes, Spotify and other streaming services.
Additional features on the album include Jill Scott, Roc Marciano, Estelle, Pete Rock, 2 Chainz and Damon Albarn of Gorillaz. The album was originally slated to drop in September of 2015 but was pushed back to April 29 due to distribution negotiations and side artist clearances. When that date arrived this spring, the group announced yet another delay, writing, “The release date for this album is August 26th; you guys are gonna get this project...We’re just so happy to get you guys this music, finally. We know you’re going to enjoy it, so again, thank you for your support all the way through.” They as well released a three song EP titled For Your Pain & Suffering to hold fans over.
But alas, the release date and new album have arrived, with Questlove and others sharing their enthusiasm online. De La will be playing the Los Angeles Food and Wine Festival tomorrow (Aug. 27) and have a few international dates to close out the year. Stream the new album below.
