Meshell news...



Just got this press release:

Meshell Ndegeocello to release new full length vocal album - Devil’s Halo - October 6th on Mercer Street

Meshell's 8th album and her first for Mercer Street, Devil’s Halo harkens back to the way records used to be made: no click track or electronic synthetics, with a focus on musicianship and live band energy. Meshell feels that Devil’s Halo represents a return to a place that she truly appreciates, music that is created and performed by people's hands.

Produced by Meshell and guitarist Chris Bruce, and influenced by a wide breadth of sounds - from The Human League to Wu Tang to Yes – Devil’s Halo displays Meshell's vocals and diversity throughout.

Meshell Ndegeocello – vocal and bass
Chris Bruce - guitar
Deantoni Parks - drums
Keefus Ciancia - keys
special guests: Oren Bloedow (b/g vocals), Mark Kelley (b/g vocals) and Lisa Germano (cello)

Devil’s Halo track listing:
1. Slaughter
2. Tie One On
3. Lola
4. Hair Of The Dog
5. Mass Transit
6. White Girl
7. Love You Down
8. Devil’s Halo
9. Bright Shiny Morning
10. Blood On The Curb
11. Die Young
12. Crying In Your Beer

I can't help but hope that "Love You Down" is a cover of the RFTW track. I remember that song coming on while Jahi Sundance was spinning back in 2003 at the Fillmore...

You never know with her :)

I wonder if "White Girl" is the X song, for that matter? That would be weird & wonderful.
