The Roots Set to Work on New 'Endgame' Album
Tentatively titled Endgame (or perhaps End Game), Questlove dropped snippets of a studio session on his Instagram account late yesterday (October 17) that show Stro Elliot chopping up some guitar recordings.
Questlove explained in his post that the recording process is reminiscent of how 1996's Illadelph Halflife came together, where the band "decided to be our own sampling source and jam in the day and sample ourselves at night." Jazz drummer Karriem Riggins also shared his involvement with the sessions.
While we await further details on the record, you can take a look at the teasers below.
In 1996 w our 3rd album #IlladelphHalflife we decided to be our own sampling source and jam in the day and sample ourselves at night. 20 years later we are working on our 17th album entitled #Endgame....& we startin all over again. Here the gawd @StroElliot is breaking out his get busy tools and making ish sound tight!
