With a release date set for December 6, the might Roots crew unveil some behind the scenes impressions for their 13th studio album Undun. Besides showing the Philadelphia crew's busy work, the visual also unveils the official artwork for their first concept album which is said to be influenced by orchestral chamber music. Also make sure to check out a brief description of the album below.
undun is an existential re-telling of the short life of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999). Through the use of emotives and Redford’s internal dialogues the album seeks to illustrate the intersection of free will and prescribed destiny as it plays out ‘on the corner’. Utilizing a reverse narrative arc, the album begins as the listener finds Redford disoriented–postmortem–and attempting to make sense of his former life. As he moves through its pivotal moments he begins to deconstruct all that has led to his (and our own) coming undun.
