Meshell Ndegeocello

Groove driven, infectiously melodic and lyrically meditative, Comet Come To Me, Meshell’s 11th studio album, includes her version of Whodini’s classic hip-hop track “Friends” (released in 1984). Featuring special guests Shara Worden (My Brightest Diamond) and Doyle Bramhall, along with long-time collaborators Christopher Bruce (guitar) and Jebin Bruni (keys), and Earl Harvin on drums, the album, to be released in June, continues the path of music’s funkiest seeker.

Hailed by the New York Times as “a singer-songwriter of searching candor and an electric bassist of mesmerizing skill”, Meshell is pleased to release Continuous Performance, featuring exclusive new and vintage Meshell performances. Available FREE via NoiseTrade, the EP includes a live sneak peak of “Continuous Performance” from Comet, Come To Me, plus live versions of three fan favorites: “Bitter”, “Loyalty (featuring Joan Osborne)” and “Beautiful”, recorded at The Bowery Ballroom in New York City in 1999 as part of her infamous Bitter tour (never before released).
