URBAN LEGENDS TO RELEASE THE ROOTS’ HIGHLY ACCLAIMED 10TH STUDIO ALBUM UNDUN ON LIMITED EDITION SMOKE COLOR VINYL ON NOVEMBER 30
Los Angeles – October 26, 2018 – On November 30th, Urban Legends will release The Roots’ conceptual project, Undun, the Grammy-nominated 10th studio album, on limited edition smoke color vinyl. Pre-order is available now: https://UrbanLegends.lnk.to/TheRootsUndun
The Roots, already a veteran band at the time of the album’s release in December 2011, maintained a sense of artistic urgency, crafting this conceptual album with a loose narrative that follows Undun’s imaginary protagonist, Redford Stevens, through a journey of imbalance, self-reflection, and triumph.
Couched in an impoverished setting, the album features what All Music called “existential rhymes” from the group’s formidable MC, Black Thought, and stellar guests including Big K.R.I.T, Bilal, Phonte and more.
At Billboard, Undun hit No. 2 on the Top Rap Albums chart, No. 4 on the Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums and No. 17 Billboard Top 200 chart. Sonically, Undun has textured production with orchestral touches, an R&B feel, driving drums and phenomenal musicianship.
