Erykah Badu, D'Angelo, FKA twigs, Damon Albarn, the Internet's Syd and Nick Hakim are among the names linked to a mysterious new project from Slingbaum.

In launching pre-orders for the project's debut three-track release, the artist wrote on Instagram, "This is the result of years of work shared with the individuals listed with whom it was the greatest pleasure of my life to work with."

A complete set of credits for Slingbaum One points to songs titled "Behoove," "Strangers" and "Morphine," with even more contributors attached.

Badu and the elusive D'Angelo will join forces on "Behoove," and "Strangers" lines up FKA twigs, Oumou Sangaré and Hakim, while "Morphine" features Albarn, Bilal and Syd.

Other notable names that appear in the track credits include Roots drummer Questlove, jazz pianist Ahmad Jamal, Hiatus Kaiyote's Perrin Moss and Simon Mavin, Rashad "Ringo" Smith, Marcus Strickland, Jameel Bruner, Ron Carter, Cory Henry and more.

As far as when to expect the music, Slingbaum has revealed that the tracks will only be available by pre-ordering a limited-edition 12-inch. 

"We are selling this record once in this short pre-sale window and we have no plans to sell beyond this window or make it available digitally (to stream)," they wrote.

Slingbaum One's vinyl pressing will come with a download code, and is now available for pre-order.
