All has been quiet on the new Roots album front since ?uestlove tweeted the title, How I Got Over, way back in February. It’s not like the Roots haven’t been busy; they’ve been serving as the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s Late Night. But apparently the legendary Philadelphia crew have wrapped work on Got Over, and plan to release it sometime this summer. That’s right, a new Roots album is due out this summer.
There’s not much news other than a vague promise for a summer street date, but apparently the band already filmed a video for the set’s planned first single, “I Walk Alone.” When that video will be out is anyone’s guess, but it’s good to see that being on Fallon hasn’t kept the guys from working on a new album, which was the fear of every Roots fan when they joined up with Fallon.
