Black Thought released his excellent new solo album Streams of Thought, Vol. 3: Cane and Able last week, and yesterday (10/21) he appeared on Hot 97's Ebro in the Morning to talk about that album and what's next. He mentioned a new Roots album is more or less finished, and he says "2021 for a new Roots album for sure," and also adds that he'll put out more Streams of Thought volumes in 2021 and a collaborative album with Danger Mouse, which Black Thought says has been in the works for 13 or 14 years. "It's a full-on album, and it's a return for him to hip hop and for sampling in this way," Black Thought says. "It's a feel-good record, it's a record for people who got into hip hop and who evolved at the same time that we did. We're elder statesmen at this point so I feel like this record is reflective of that too."
More recently, Danger Mouse worked on music with Karen O, Michael Kiwanuka, Broken Bells, Parquet Courts, Portugal. The Man (who are also featured heavily on Streams of Thought, Vol. 3), and others, but as Black Thought said, it's been a while since he's done a hip hop record.
