Robert Glasper Experiment will release Black Radio (Blue Note Records/EMI), a future landmark album that boldly stakes out new musical territory and transcends any notion of genre, drawing from jazz, hip hop, R&B and rock, but refusing to be pinned down by any one tag.
The first full-length album from the GRAMMY-nominated keyboardist's electric Experiment band–saxist/vocoderist Casey Benjamin, bassist Derrick Hodge, and drummer Chris Dave–Black Radio also features many of Glasper's famous friends from the spectrum of urban music, seamlessly incorporating appearances from a jaw-dropping roll call of special guests including Erykah Badu, Bilal, Lupe Fiasco, Lalah Hathaway, Shafi q Husayn (Sa-Ra), KING, Ledisi, Chrisette Michele, Musiq Soulchild, Meshell Ndegeocello, Stokley Williams (Mint Condition), and yasiin bey (Mos Def).
Throughout, the Experiment wears its eclecticism on its sleeve, presenting new collaborative originals and surprising cover songs. They transform the Afro-Cuban standard “Afro Blue” with Badu, Sade's “Cherish The Day” with Hathaway, David Bowie's “Letter to Hermione” with Bilal, and Nirvana's “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with Benjamin's vocoder vocal
