De La Soul announced yesterday (November 20) that its forthcoming album, And The Anonymous Nobody is scheduled for an April 29 release.
“Releasing a record independently has been a real undertaking,” the group says. “In addition to artistic satisfaction, the administrative and executive end had to feel right as well. Side artist clearances and appropriating the best distribution for this project has been just as important. With negotiations complete, we are now working on the plan for our awaited release. Thank you all for your patience.”
The update also says a song entitled “Train Wreck” will be released in December and the album’s first single, “Pain,” featuring Snoop Dogg, is expected to drop in February or March.
The album was originally scheduled to be released in September, but was delayed because the group said, “We’re digging deep and exhausting every creative possibility we can to make music that’ll be worth the wait.”
And The Anonymous Nobody will de De La Soul’s, which consists of members Posdnous, Trugoy and Maseo, first album in more than 10 years.
