De La Soul has fans waiting on the edge of our seats for their ninth studio album And The Anonymous Nobody. In a much-needed Kickstarter update last night, the group filmed a Skype call to fill backers in on the album’s progress, including a video for the upcoming Snoop Doog-featuring single “Pain” and clearance issues with artists and the few samples used. De La also offered up a tasty morsel in the form of the For Your Pain & Suffering EP, which features two songs from the album (“TrainWreck” and the Dave East-featuring “Beautiful Night”) plus an additional song and interlude that didn’t make the final cut.
Speaking of which, the album’s been delayed yet again. Nobody will be dropping on August 24, almost a year after the original Kickstarter finish by date. But hey, at least we’re getting it. Stream the EP above and check out the transcript from the Kickstarter here.
