The Roots have revealed more information on their upcoming album Undun, coming December 6. Instead of approaching this like any normal album, the Philly hip-hop band wanted to make this one feel more cohesive. Questlove explains:

"At this point in our career we'd like for our work to have a unifying theme, and an experiential quality. As a DJ, I am the King of playlists, but I don't want our albums to feel like a playlist or a mixtape for that matter. We want to tell stories that work within the album format and we want the stories to be nuanced and useful to people. undun is the story of this kid who becomes criminal, but he wasn't born criminal. He's not the nouveau exotic primitive bug-eyed gunrunner like Tupac’s character Bishop in “Juice”... he's actually thoughtful and is neither victim nor hero. Just some kid who begins to order his world in a way that makes the most sense to him at a given moment... At the end of the day... isn't that what we all do?”
