?uestlove has revealed the title for The Roots’ upcoming fourteenth album.
Announcing the name on Twitter, the group’s drummer stated that the LP will be called &TYSYC, but did not explain what it stands for. “Undun is like a xmas lp. specific setting. Our next lp ‘&TYSYC’ (guess) will be regular. @teramartin @BlackiusMaximus @reverofnolef100,” he wrote.
?uesto previously spoke on the follow up to undun, stating that it would have much more energy than its predecessor. “I’ll say that at least four of the submissions [for the new album], they’re above 115 beats per minute. It’s very high energy. Not fist-pumping, but fast. This is just the music stage, not even the lyrical stage. We thought of a title two weeks ago but I am not allowed to say what it is just yet—but you’ll know soon.”
