MESHELL NDEGEOCELLO RELEASES EXPANSIVE NEW SINGLE
“THE 5th DIMENSION” FEATURING THE HAWTPLATES
NDEGEOCELLO MAKES HER BLUE NOTE DEBUT
WITH JUNE 16 RELEASE OF VISIONARY NEW ALBUM
THE OMNICHORD REAL BOOK
Meshell Ndegeocello has released “The 5th Dimension,” a sweeping new jazz-infused soul-psychedelic evocation featuring the HawtPlates, a vocal group consisting of Justin Hicks, Kenita-Miller Hicks, and Jade Hicks. It’s the latest single to be revealed from the multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, and producer’s forthcoming Blue Note debut The Omnichord Real Book, a visionary album out June 16 that taps into a broad spectrum of her musical roots with guest artists including Jason Moran, Ambrose Akinmusire, Jeff Parker, Brandee Younger, Julius Rodriguez, Mark Guiliana, Cory Henry, Joan As Police Woman, and others.
Meshell has also announced upcoming tour dates including performances at the Blue Note Jazz Festival in New York City on June 21 and Napa Valley on July 29, as well as upcoming concerts in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Washington DC, Philadelphia, and more. See below for a full list of confirmed tour dates or visit meshell.com.
“This album is about the way we see old things in new ways,” Meshell explains. “Everything moved so quickly when my parents died. Changed my view of everything and myself in the blink of an eye. As I sifted through the remains of their life together, I found my first Real Book, the one my father gave me. I took their records, the ones I grew up hearing, learning, remembering. My mother gifted me with her ache, I carry the melancholy that defined her experience and, in turn, my experience of this thing called life calls me to disappear into my imagination and to hear the music.”
