Nearly 20 years after the first installment, and five after the second, the legendary Pete Rock will release the third volume of his PeteStrumentals series on December 12.

I wanted to keep the same feeling that people got with the first PeteStrumentals, even if I’m not sampling,” Pete said in a statement. Rather than simply flipping samples, Pete has assembled a band, The Soul Brothers: drummer Daru Jones, guitarist Marcus Machado, bassists MonoNeon and Christopher McBride, keyboardist BigYuki, and vocalist Jermaine Holmes.  “I want the best; I’m like James Brown and Kool & The Gang; I want precision,” Pete Rock continues.

Having dropped the first single, “Say It Again,” he returns with a matching video. “This is something that I’ve always wanted to do” Pete said. “Being an avid digger of albums and 45s, I now have a band to study and reinterpret these records. Presenting this to the world is so fulfilling.”
