New Music: Karriem Riggins Announces New Album Headnod Suite, Drops “4Es’J & Oddness”

Today’s second big jazzy announcement comes from Stones Throw’s Karriem Riggins. The producer will release Headnod Suite, his sophomore follow-up to 2012’s Alone Together, on February 24. Riggins, who’s spent 2016 producing for Kanye West, Kaytranada, and Common’s Black America Again, says the new project “is a concept of several rhythmic ideas fused together … I wanted to explore the power of interludes and marrying different styles and harmony together.”

The announcement comes with the release of “4Es’J & Odness,” a two-parter that segues from woozy soul to futuristic boom-bap. Listen to both singles below.
