(Radio.com) In between gigs as the house band on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the Roots release albums from time to time. Just last year, the hip-hop band dropped Wise Up Ghost, their collaboration with Elvis Costello, and added a similar partnership with John Legend, Wake Up!, in 2010.

However, the gap between albums featuring a single billing - the Roots - began in December 2011, with Undun. All that changes next week (May 19), when the band releases …And Then You Shoot Your Cousin, their 11th studio album.

A week prior to its release, Pitchfork has Cousin streaming in its entirety,here. As the band's 11th album, Cousin finds the Roots becoming more and more seasoned performers, but at the same time finds the group veering in experimental directions, rather than sticking to the status quo. The album also has a concept and special guests.
