Roots Announce Cover LP With John Legend

Barely three days after the release of their new album How I Got Over was released, the Roots have announced another new album. This time, the Roots have recruited the sultry singing of John Legend for a full-length LP consisting of all covers.

Wake Up! will be entirely full with vintage covers such as Marvin Gaye's "Wholly Holy", Baby Huey and the Babysitters' "Hard Times", and Donny Hathaway's "Little Ghetto Boy".

The album will also hold one original jam titled "Shine" which Legend wrote for the documentary, Waiting for “Superman”.

Wake Up! will drop September 21 via Sony Music.

Check out a video below of the Roots and John Legend hard at work.
