After a 12-year wait, De La Soul will finally release their follow-up to 2004’s The Grind Date this summer. And the Anonymous Nobody, the trio’s eighth studio album (ninth including First Serve, which only features Posdnuos and Trugoy) is scheduled to drop on August 26. The breezy “Pain,” featuring fellow hip-hop OG Snoop Dogg, is a cut from the project. Snoop gets somewhat introspective during his verse: “Used to gang bang, used to love the clashes/ Now cash is the only motivation, but not for me G / I’m into public relations.” The track follows up their surprise EP For Your Pain & Suffering, released last month.
