So let me get this straight: De La Soul has been more or less under-the-radar these past few years. And then suddenly, we find out that two-thirds of the group, Dave and Posdnuos, have formed a new duo called First Serve and they have an album due out in early April.
While we’re still trying to digest that news, De La Soul has simultaneously been posting snippets from a new group album, You’re Welcome. Yeah, confusing, I know, but you’ll be fine once you check out the latest preview track, “Mr. Big Mouph II.” Backed by Khrysis’ bright, piano-laced production, we get to hear some bars from Dave that make us wonder why we haven’t been listening to enough De La lately. You can stream the preview track (and bug out) below. [HHNM]
