Listen: The Roots’ new song “Tomorrow”

on April 26, 2014, 12:21pm

The Roots have unveiled “Tomorrow”, the second track from their 11th studio album, And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, due out May 13th via Def Jam.  Following the classical-leaning “When The People Cheer”, “Tomorrow” is a bit more peppy and optimistic, with guest singer Raheem DeVaughn delivering a lush croon over a medley of reggae rhythms and ragtime piano. Even if it is more danceable, the crew still offer their trademark insight into the human condition, as DeVaughn soulfully delivers clever-but-cutting lyrics like “And everybody wants tomorrow right now”, hinting that people are far too impatient to simply enjoy the here and now.

Take a listen below
