As we informed you last week in our “Expectations” post, Robert Glasper Experiment is expected to release Black Radio 2 on October 29th via Blue Note Records. We’ve got the premiere of the first release from the highly anticipated follow up to Black Radio. “Calls” ft. Jill Scott is track numbered 4 on the new record which boasts a cast of guests including Nora Jones, Emeli Sandé and Dwele. Jill’s vocals sit royally on this track. The time signature is a refreshing element, and highlights the poetic conversational flow, an aural signature of Ms. Scott. Not only does this track bolster the anticipation of the release of Black Radio 2, but it heightens the yearning for a new album from Jill Scott, who’s last release was in 2011.
