Listening booth — The Roots, “Make My” (feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

The Roots - "Make My" (feat. Big K.R.I.T.)

If nothing else, the Roots are insanely prolific. Despite their day (night) job as the house band for Jimmy Fallon’s late night talk show, they find time to record and release project after project.

It’s barely been 18 months since How I Got Over came out (and even less since their collaboration with John Legend), the followup album — Undun — is scheduled for a December 6 release.

The first single from Undun (which the Roots say will be a concept album), “Make My,” was just dropped. Check it:

I wasn’t expecting anything this mellow, but I really like it. I love that keyboard riff, and the bridge is a hunk of vintage soul right off one of Stevie Wonder’s classic ’70s albums.
