The first of four videos that will be released for The Roots upcoming album, undun, due out December 6th. The YouTube page also boasted a interesting write-up about the album; which you can check below. Also, OKP has the last set of lyrics up now as well.
undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
