Meshell Ndegeocello Introduces Her Comet With Conviction
Thursday, April 10, 2014
After giving praise to the High Priestess of Soul back in 2012, Meshell Ndegeocello is going to take it back to an astral state of mind with her upcoming album, Comet, Come To Me. From title alone you can bet that Meshell is delving into something cerebral and cosmic for her 11th set (!) and with the first taste test of album track, "Conviction", Meshell is still up in her feelings and bringing her usual soul stirs that are as always skillfully refined. Except this time out she opts out of experimental meditations and rests her head in the familiar plush soul/rock pillows of her past '90s work. Nice. "Conviction" is just one of 12 new original tracks to be featured on Comet, or one of 15, depending of if you snag the expanded edition that Meshell will offer through her webspot.
A month ago, Meshell gave a brief interview with folks over at The Boombox to discuss the new album among other topics that are rolling around in her cranium (oh, to sit, sip tea, and exchange words with her!), and thankfully she keeps the project shrouded in a bit of mystery, but knowing how Meshell rarely (if at all never) disappoints me, Comet, Come To Me will be yet another cherished set from her. You can pre-order the album here and expect for its proper release June 3rd.
