The Robert Glasper Experiment is back at it with the announcement of their newest LP ArtScience set to drop September 16th on Blue Note. But where do you go following two GRAMMY wins and numerous collaborations with the likes of Erykah Badu, Norah Jones and even Snoop Dogg? “You do you,” says Glasper with a chuckle. “People need to hear what the Experiment sounds like, just us—know what our vibe is and can be.” With this noble goal in mind ArtScience aims at collaboration above all. Each of the core members, keyboardist Robert Glasper, saxophonist Casey Benjamin, bassist Derrick Hodge, and drummer Mark Colenburg, contributed not only vocals to the album but also lent a hand in the album’s production and songwriting departments. Case in point, “Find You”, the first single off ArtScience which was penned jointly by all four band members. Enjoy below the jump.
