Erykah Badu - "New Amerykah Part Two: Return Of The Ankh" 2LP Vinyl
2010 release, the fifth studio album from Erykah Badu. In contrast to "New Amerykah Part One (4th World War)", which was digitally produced and political in tone, "New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh" features lush live instrumentation and taps into Badu's emotional side by thematically focusing on romance and relationships. "We used a lot of analog instruments...harps, strings, drums, piano, and even a Theremin, to give the album that sonic feel," says Badu. "There's a strong undercurrent of bottom, a rumbling to these songs that feels good to me. It feels like a hug."
Co-producers include J Dilla, Mdalib, 9th Wonder, James Poyser, Shafiq Husayn, Ta'Raach, Mike Chav, Karriem Riggins, and Georgia Anne Muldrow.
