Shocking Details on New Erykah Badu Album Details/Lost Connection

I know you’ve been religiously checking this website every day to see if there are new details on the upcoming Erykah Badu album New Amerykah Part II: Return of the Ankh. So today’s your lucky day! We’ve got DETAILS GALORE on the new political/Lost-themed-sounding album, due for a March 30 release on Universal Motown. (“Return of the Ankh” is tooooootally a reference to the giant, apparently paper-mache ankh Hurley was carrying in that guitar case last week, am I right? I so am.)

Things we know:

1. “Jump in the Air” (a tribute to Kris Kross’ “Jump”? I wish) features guest vocals from Andre 3000 and Lil Wayne. That song has been (intentionally) leaked and will no longer be on the album, but instead available as a web-only bonus track.

2. Badu produced or co-produced every track on this album, with other rad producers, including people like Madlib, J Dilla, and 9th Wonder.

3. ?uestlove makes an appearance on “Window Seat.”

4. Erykah Badu will be performing across the United States this summer as part of Lilith Fair!
