How I Got Over, the Roots’ new album, isn’t out until June 22nd. However, you can hear what Jimmy Fallon’s house band does between takes right now on their MySpace page.
While the album is available to hear legally, word has it that the album recently leaked to torrent sites as well, with Twitter and Facebook users proclaiming the album “awesome” and Joanna Newsom’s collaboration with the band “ill.” No word yet on how well further collaborations with Jim James and the female vocalists of Dirty Projectors went.
James is also appearing with the band on Fallon tonight to perform his song “Dear God” from the Monsters of Folk album. However, it’s doubtful he’ll top the group’s recent cover of “Straight Outta Compton” featuring Ice Cube.
