Bump It

New Erykah Badu out this week.  The whole album is filled with strong tracks but the standout is "Gone Baby, Don't Be Long" which uses a sample from Paul McCartney and Wings' soft rock classic "Arrow Through Me".  She got her sample clearance using Twitter and her connection to Stella McCartney.  The analog girl in a digital world days are officially over.

The single shot video for "Window Seat" is of her making a slow and revealing and inexplicable pilgrimage to the grassy knoll in Dallas.  Crazy.  More, please.
