Published Dec 01, 2014Sub Pop-signed duo THEESatisfaction are continuing in their pursuit of forward-thinking alt-R&B. As a follow-up to 2012's awE NaturalE, they're back with album number two: EarthEE will be out on February 24.
The album was produced by the group, along with returning collaborator Erik Blood (Shabazz Palaces, Moondoggies), who also handled mixing duties. Blood is also a featured guest on a few songs; other guests include Shabazz Palaces members Ishmael Butler and Tendai Maraire, fellow Sub Pop hip-hop act Porter Ray, Meshell Ndegeocello and Taylor Brown.
That's the cover artwork above. Scroll past the tracklist below to hear the arty, space-age hip-hop track "Recognition."
Anyone who pre-orders the LP from the Sub Pop Mega Mart will get the so-called "Loser Edition" on emerald-coloured vinyl. It comes with a 7-inch containing the songs "I Don't Like You" and "Supa Dupa (Love Affair)," while supplies last.
