“The world needs more musicians like her: Creatively restless and ambitious.”– NPR Music
“a singer-songwriter of searching candor and an electric bassist of mesmerizing skill” – New York Times
“stunningly beautiful” – Los Angeles Times
“Quiet yet mighty music” – The Washington Post
Look for Comet, Come To Me to start with bass lines and finish in space. Groove driven, infectiously melodic, and lyrically meditative, this album continues the path of music’s funkiest seeker.
“Comet, Come To Me was a little labor but a lot of love,” says Meshell. “It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while.”
Meshell Ndegeocello Performs “Continuous Performance”
Meshell’s 11th studio album features special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall, along with long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce (guitar) and Jebin Bruni (keys), and Earl Harvin on drums.
Meshell and her band recently spent an afternoon in the studio with The Boombox, where they recorded a live performance of several tracks, and where Meshell spoke about her writing and recording process, as well as her influences (Nick Drake, Prince) and the randomness of music. Check out the interview, along with some in-studio performance clips from the new album here; new segments will be posted throughout the week.
More info on Comet, Come to Me will be revealed shortly – stay tuned!
