(Gibson) Roots drummer ?uestlove has announced that he and his band are working on a orchestral influenced concept album. According to Billboard.com, ?uestlove said: "This is going to be our first full-fledged narrative concept album. It's going to be a challenge to figure out how to get from point A to B or in this case, point B to point A, and have it seem natural."

He said the sound would be "heavy on sort of orchestral chamber music with harder beats in it."

The band are keeping the album title secret for now, but did let on that it has an "unusual spelling." The drummer said, "It's a one-word title that's spelled incorrectly... what a way to tease you, right?" more on this story
