The Roots released a collaborative album last year with Elvis Costello and have been Jimmy Fallon’s house band for years, but last night the neo-soul band announced that they’ll go solo for their 11th studio album. The LP is titled And Then You Shoot Your Cousin and is set for release on May 13 through Def Jam Records. Along with their announcement, they also released a new single called “When the People Cheer”.
The Root’s lead singer and emcee Black Thought revealed back in late February that this new album will be another concept album to follow-up with undun. You can listen to the new single below.
