Hear The Roots w/ Dirty Projectors, Joanna Newsom

June 18, 2010

Last month, we heard the new Roots track featuring Monsters of Folk, “Dear God 2.0,” and posted what was believed to be the full tracklist to their LP, How I Got Over, but what about the confirmed Joanna Newsom-guesting track and rumored Dirty Projectors collaboration? As it turns out, there are a few more cuts on the album than previously reported and three members of the latter band do, in fact, perform on one of them.

According to ?uestlove’s site OkayPlayer, album opener “A Peace Of Light” features Amber Coffman, Angel Deradoorian, and Haley Dekle of the Dirty Projectors. Need more proof? You can listen to 1:30 samples of every track off How I Got Over below, including their sample of Joanna Newsom’s “The Book of Right-On” (on the song “Right On,” duh). **Update: Full tracks are now on their MySpace. Enjoy:
