De La Soul have launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their new yet-to-be named album!
De La Soul have announced that they’ll be releasing their first album in eleven years via a Kickstarter campaign. De La Soul have been independent artists for the last decade, free of record label interfering in their creative process. Since fans have typically been the ones who supported and appreciated De La Soul’s vision, De La Soul will be using Kickstarter to give fans the opportunity to be a part of the process.
For the new album, De La Soul will be sampling themselves and are in the process of going through 200+ hours of music to discover new sounds that can be sampled, looped, chopped etc. They’ll also be collaborating with artists such as David Byrne, Damon Albarn, 2 Chainz, Little Dragon, and more that have yet to be announced.
De La Soul are offering many different pledges, including an autographed colored vinyl that’s limited to 2500 copies. (The vinyl is limited to 2500 copies, but their are only 500 of the autographed version available via Kickstarter).
