Erykah Badu Previews New Album, Reveals Title
Eclectic songstress Erykah Badu treated an intimate crowd to new music off her upcoming album Thursday night, and managed to take it one step further by announcing its title at a private listening session at Electric Lady Studios in New York. The singer told the group that she has decided to dub the album 'New America.' The long-awaited follow-up to 2003's 'Worldwide Underground' features Badu's soft, silky voice over a slew of bass-heavy beats and -- her usual -- introspective lyrics.
The singer-songwriter also performed a new, untitled, specially-written song in a guest appearance on the WB sitcom 'Girlfriends.' 'New AmErykah' is slated for a February release.
