The Roots Reveal ‘Undun’ Album Art in New Video — Watch
Philly rap crew The Roots are preparing to release ‘UNDUN,’ their most ambitious record to date, and have offered fans a glimpse at the album artwork, along with a brief behind-the-scenes clip from the photo shoot.
The video, which was shot in “The Cage,” New York City’s famed West 4th St. basketball court, depicts the ‘Late Night With Jimmy Fallon’ band decked out in black suits and leather, posing to the tune of ‘Make My,’ the album’s first single, featuring Big K.R.I.T.
At the end of the two-minute clip, the cover art is revealed to be a 2009 photo by Jamel Shabazz, depicting a kid doing a backflip on a pile of torn up bedsprings. Check out a photo Roots drummer ?uestlove tweeted here.
‘UNDUN’ is The Roots crew’s 13th album, which has been described as “an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens,” using a reverse narrative arc to review the missteps he made, leading to his untimely end.
‘UNDUN’ will be in stores on Dec. 4.
