New Music: Robert Glasper feat. Brandy 'What Are We Doing'

The Robert Glasper Experiment is releasing Black Radio 2–the much anticipated follow-up to 2012′s critically acclaimed Black Radio–on October 29th through Blue Note Records. Here is a track from the upcoming album, like the last album this one is set to feature a plethora of guests from all musical backgrounds. Common, Lupe Fiasco, and Snoop Dogg (thought he was lion now?) all represent the hip-hop front while Marsha Ambrosius, Anthony Hamilton, Brandy, and Lalah Hathaway are stand-outs from soul and r&b backgrounds. The pianist’s third album with his ‘Experiment’ band also has collaborations with Fall Out Boy‘s Patrick Stump, Norah Jones, and Emeli Sandé. Unlike the original Black Radio LP, this will feature almost all original compositions. With RGE’s ability to blend genres and influences so seamlessly, we’re very excited to hear what they bring to the table.
