Meshell Ndegeocello Announces New Album, “Comet, Come To Me”, Out June 2014 + Exclusive Interview, Performance


Meshell Ndegeocello Announces New Album, Comet, Come To Me, Out June 2014Look for Comet, Come To Me to start with bass lines and finish in space. Groove driven, infectiously melodic, and lyrically meditative, this album continues the path of music’s funkiest seeker.

“Comet, Come To Me was a little labor but a lot of love,” says Meshell. “It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while.”

Meshell’s 11th studio album features special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall, along with long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce (guitar) and Jebin Bruni (keys), and Earl Harvin on drums.

Meshell and her band recently spent an afternoon in the studio with The Boombox, where they recorded a live performance of several tracks, and where Meshell spoke about her writing and recording process, as well as her influences (Nick Drake, Prince) and the randomness of music. Check out the interview, along with some in-studio performance clips from the new album here; new segments will be posted throughout the week.
