Meshell Ndegeocello's "Weather" Out Today, U.S. Tour This Winter!

Today, Meshell Ndegeocello releases her highly anticipated new album Weather on Naïve Records. Produced by Grammy-winner Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Solomon Burke, Ani DiFranco), Weather has already been hailed by critics at the New York Times and NPR as one of the Meshell’s finest records in 20 years.
 
Meshell will also be hitting the road this month for a full U.S. tour.  The acclaimed and eclectic songwriter will play New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C. with more US dates to be announced soon.
 
A strikingly organic record, Weather finds Meshell experimenting with sparse, orchestral melodies paired with thoughtful lyrics, all performed by a band of fearless musicians. The album opens with the title track “Weather,” a spacey, soulful groove that sets the stage for the rest of the record. Tracks like “Oysters” and her cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Chelsea Hotel” find Meshell constructing hushed ballads, centered around mournful piano. These tracks are juxtaposed with Meshell’s defiant, soulful stomps on songs like “Rapid Fire” and “Dirty World.” The album also features all-star collaborations with the likes of Chris Connelly (ex-Revolting Cocks, Ministry), Benji Hughes, and Joe Henry.
