Listen to The Roots “How I Got Over”

Philly’s own The Roots will release a new record entitled How I Got Over, next Tuesday(06/22). The album features a ton of collaborations including the girls from Dirty Projectors, Joanna Newsom, Monsters of Folk, John Legend and more. You can listen to the album in it’s entirety over at the band’s Myspace. After a quick listen, I like it a lot more than their last outing, Rising Down. I have to admit though. I had hoped the girls from Dirty Projectors would have a big part vocally but that’s not case. They’re used very scarely in the nearly two minute opener “A Peace Of Light”. Check it out for yourself.

Also, according to a tweet from Questlove earlier. He will play “Dear God 2.0” with Jim James tonight on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon. So check that out too.
