De La Soul Launches Kickstarter Campaign
It’s been 11 years since De La Soul released an album and they’re ready to bring you some more good music! The group, who has managed to be free of record label constraints for a nice chunk of their career, launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to bring fans an eighth LP. Here’s a little bit from the crew’s Kickstarter page:
We’re excited and ready to create. It’s been essential that we find ways to fund, record and release new music. Typically the fans have been the ones who support and appreciate our vision, so using Kickstarter and giving our fans the opportunity to be a part of the process just feels right. We see Kickstarter as a home for creative minds and a wonderful platform; where people who people, respect and see the vision, can support an idea and make it a reality.
The group says the new album will incorporate elements of Jazz, Funk, Rock, Country Western and anything else they are feeling at the moment. They will use the funds for studio time, production equipment, promotional materials/services and featured artists.
