After smashing their Kickstarter goal to fund the group’s eighth studio album, hip hop trio De La Soul have teamed with Bestival Toronto headliner Nas for a retro jazz-infused new track titled, "God It." The group has said the song will not be included on the upcoming album, An Anonymous Nobody, but instead acts as a teaser for “good music to come.” The new album, which is their first in 11 years, will feature other big names like Damon Albarn, David Byrne, 2 Chainz, and Little Dragon. There’s no release date yet, but recording begins this month.
In a statement, De La Soul's Dave said:
“While busy at work, we also like to play. This song is not on the new album, but an indication of good music to come. The song was produced by G_Force and you may recognize our featured guest. We're still in Atlanta recording and it sounds amazing! We can't wait to get this new album to you.”
