De La Soul‘s Posdnuos recently took time to speak about the group’s upcoming album, You’re Welcome.
“We have several tracks that are coming together incredibly,” said Pos, according to Entertainment Weekly. Included amongst the songs are “We Are (For the People),” featuring vocals
from Chuck D and Flavor Flav (get out those running shoes!), as well as a song titled “We Are God.”
Pos also revealed that the group also hopes to get a feature from Damon Albarn, Blur‘s lead singer and mastermind behind the Gorillaz.
