New Track: MeShell Ndegeocello – “Dirty World” + MP3


Meshell Ndegeocello’s new album, Weather, will be out November 8th. Produced by Grammy-winner Joe Henry, who has also worked with miss Ani DiFranco, Weather is full of ethereal orchestral melodies and some serious live instrumentation. If “Dirty World,” is any indication, we see that Meshell continues with her genre mashing and experimentation as well as her otherworldly songwriting. There are even bits of this track that remind us of Comfort Woman, possibly our favorite Meshell album.
