, De La Rocha entered Electric Lady Studios in New York last week, and the songs featured ?uestlove in an instrumental and production capacity.

It is currently unclear what will happen to the songs, but as previously reported on NME.COM, De La Rocha has been working on his solo album since his departure from Rage in October last year.

He also rumoured to have worked with El-P, a member of New York rap group Company Flow, DJ Shadow and Roni Size. The album is expected to be completed this year.

In other news, De La Rocha is also set to feature on ‘In Search Of…’ , the debut album by production duo The Neptunes. The Neptunes, who have previously produced hits for Kelis, Jay-Z and Mystikal, will release the album under the guise of ‘N.E.R.D.’ in spring.
