Wyclef Jean Announces New 'J'ouvert' EP

Wyclef Jean

(Radio.com) Wyclef Jean will release the five-song-song EP "J'ouvert" on September 30. The EP follows the release of his new single, "Hendrix," and prefaces his forthcoming 2017 album, Carnival III: Road to Clefication.

Wyclef says that the EP is a fitting introduction for his next album. "My goal for J'ouvert was to pick up where I left off after 'Sweetest Girl' and [Shakira's] 'Hips Don't Lie,'" he told Rolling Stone. "I had these Caribbean sonics haunting my brain and I knew this EP would be the start to what would become the Carnival 3 album."

Rolling Stone reports that Carnival III: Road to Clefication will be released next summer to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the musician's original Carnival. Check out the track details here.
