Listen To A New Madlib-Produced Erykah Badu Jam, "Strawberry Incense," That Sounds For All The World Like Joanna Newsom
Unless Erykah's PR is sassin' me big-time, this jam will not be on the imminent New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh , though it's certainly smooth/alluring/sweetly deranged enough to make the cut. Given all the harp + cooing action in the first 90 seconds, it could also just as easily fit on Ms. Newsom's Have One on Me, which already had plenty of tracks, I suppose. That does appear to be EB's real cover art though, which, wow. The Awl's also got photos of Erykah surfing, if that's your thing.
