The track will appear on De La Soul’s upcoming ‘Smell the D.A.I.S.Y.’ mixtape, a full collection of Dilla beats and De La Soul . De La Soul are expected to release new album ‘You’re Welcome’ later in 2014 but admit that their own high standards have delayed the album’s release. The group are also believed to be working on an EP titled ‘Preemium Soul On The Rocks’.
The trio recently shared another new song in ‘Dilla Plugged In’, which is taken from the same mixtape and features reworked elements of their track ‘Plug Tunin’ from the album ‘3 Feet High And Rising’. Similarly, ‘Vocabulary Spills’ includes new versions of parts of ‘The Bizness’, from ‘Stakes Is High’.
De La Soul recently announced a fresh batch of live dates to celebrate 25 years since the release of ‘3 Feet High And Rising’ with shows in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Lowestoft, Leamingston Spa and Bristol all scheduled. The trio will then return in August for further shows following their appearance at Camp Bestival. See below for full dates and ticket details.
