LISTEN: Meshell Ndegeocello - "Dirty World"
By Quinn S.
Meshell Ndegeocello - "Dirty World"
On the spark of a disco bass line, "Dirty World" lights up and slinks along with a seductive air. The chorus introduces a synthesizer and a dash of dreampop and R&B, and then fades back into the late night ether. It moves gracefully from soothing moments to chilling moments, defying precise classification.
Weather is out November 8th on Naïve. It was produced by Grammy-winner Joe Henry (Aimee Mann, Solomon Burke, Ani DiFranco) and features collaborations with the likes of Chris Connelly (ex-Revolting Cocks, Ministry), Benji Hughes, and Joe Henry.
