Ask and ye shall receive, even if it’s only in portions. Last night, I asked Erykah if she could release a new album. See, we often lament losing Lauryn, but I never feel like Erykah gets proper credit. Both artists broke out around the same time but Badu’s done more to nurture us over the years. She doesn’t deliver projects on any set intervals, but when she comes through bearing fruits they’re always good.
Moments after my request was sent, “Heaven For A Sinner” showed up in my inbox. The song features the aforementioned Ms. Badu working with Bonobo, British-born, NYC-based producer, for a track from his forthcoming album The North Borders. It’s not exactly what I asked for, but it’ll hold until Erykah’s ready.
