Erykah Badu has dropped “Window Seat,” the first single from her upcoming album.
The lead single sets the tone of any album. Given what we’re hearing in “Window Seat,” New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh will be more introspective than her previous album.
"With Part One, I was standing at an apex, looking at what was going on around me politically, socially, and economically," Badu explained. "With Part Two, I’m hovering over me, looking at what’s going on inside of me."
We’re also looking forward to a return of her more soulful sound, which is richly complemented by a live band. We don’t know whether Ms. Erykah is coming or going in “Window Seat,” but we can’t wait to hear more.
