Album Watch: Meshell To Unveil 'Devil's Halo' This Fall

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Dust off and put on your smarty pants as you soak in some intellectual tunes this Fall from one of Neo-Soul's defining sistas, Meshell Ndegeocello. Honey Soul Music has reported that the singer/guitarist is releasing Devil's Halo this October, the follow-up to 2007's The World Has Made Me The Man Of My Dreams. Common knowledge tells you that this is one album to invest in this year, as Meshell continues to add her unique style to the Soul/Jazz/Hip-Hop markets. Meshell mentioned that on Devil's Halo, she has crafted songs out of influences from groups Wu Tang Clan, Yes and The Human League. That's quite a melting pot right there and of course I'm anxious to hear the outcome. On the new album's tracklisting, a song called, "Mass Transit" has recently performed and its all kinds of interesting, which no doubt gets you excited for what's in store for Meshell's eighth studio record.
Meshell is forever a favorite of mines thanks to classic straight through listens like 1993's Plantation Lullabies, which features the eternally epic, "Outside Your Door". No doubt that Devil's Halo will be an album that Meshell listeners will sop up like bread to some melted butter. Devil's Halo will be in stores, October 6th.

  1. I own all her albums, but the last two, which I need to get. Of them all thus far, "Comfort Woman" (2003) is my favorite. But I plan to cop this when it drops.-QH
