♥♥ In the latest installment of Levi’s Pioneer Sessions, John Legend hooks up with The Roots to re-craft the classic song “Our Generation” by Mississippi soul singer Ernie Hines. The song will also be featured on John Legend & The Roots’ upcoming collaborative album, Wake Up!, which is due out on September 21st. The album will feature soulful music from the 60’s and 70’s all with an underlying theme of awareness, engagement and consciousness. You can take a listen to the title track and preview the album on John Legend’s website. This should be good!

She’s also currently in the studio working on a new album entitled, Cymatika Vol. 1. According to Ameriie, the pronunciation is the same, it just has a slightly different meaning. Publicity stunt, maybe? I don’t know….
