The Roots Producing John Legend’s ‘Wake Up Sessions’ LP

    After much speculation on the OkayPlayer boards over the past year that included discussion of an unreleased album, the Roots’ drummer and producer Questlove announced that his band will produce John Legend’s upcoming Wake Up Sessions LP. This will be Legend’s fourth, and hopefully best, record that follows up his lukewarm Evolver, which dropped in 2008. While that album featured a killer single in “Green Light” with Andre 3000, the rest of the tracks left a lot to be desired. But Legend pairing up with the Roots just sounds so right that I’m actually surprised it hasn’t happened for a full album before now. No word yet on when Wake Up Sessions is due out.
