De La Soul’s forthcoming Kickstarter-funded new album keeps on sounding better and better — both literally (Bob Power, who’s worked with D’Angelo, Common, and A Tribe Called Quest, is mastering the album) and in terms of its incredible guest list. Besides recruiting Damon Albarn, David Byrne, 2 Chainz, and Little Dragon, they’ve announced that Usher, Snoop Dogg, Pete Rock, Roc Marciano, and Estelle will also appear on the LP. Head on over to their official Kickstarter to watch a video of Power talking about the mixes’ intricate live string arrangements and vocal tracking.
