Erykah Badu has released full release details of her new mixtape, But You Caint Use My Phone. The Ep will be a follow up to 2010’s New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh, and will be released on November 27 exclusively on Itunes and Apple Music. One of the songs on the EP will include her cover of Drakes “Hotline Bling” which you can find here (but will appear on the Ep as “Cell U Lar Device”
The press release for the EP says:
“The mixtape expertly weaves Erykah Badu’s trademark soulful vocals with psychedelic soundscapes, hip-hop-inflected beats, smooth R&B, jazz, art-rock and found sounds into a new genre Erykah describes as TRap & B. Badu and Witnessin dedicated a lot of time to precise mixing work, toying with EQs and other filters so that the sound’s frequency and vibration move in tandem to capture a feeling she refers to as ‘sympathetic vibration’.
Badu also used a tuning fork and Tibetan singing bowls to fine-tune these details, with the goal of creating a sound that brings peace and tranquility to its listener. It is a sound that Badu herself referrers to as a “whole new frequency” for fans”
