Limited edition "Shades of Purple" colored vinyl

2022 reissue of R&B singer-songwriter Erykah Badu's fourth album

This is a series of celebrated records from multi-platinum-selling, Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter/actress Erykah Badu. Badu explores a post-Civil Rights landscape in which African Americans have been left to sort out how to have a cultural identity as part of a nation that had, up until very recently, been a dedicated adversary. 

Features the singles "Soldier," "The Healer," and "Honey." The album is part one of the series New Amerykah Part 1 & 2.

Pitchfork called this a "pointedly social" record series and expressed that New Amerykah seems rooted in a love for the music of that period — the Civil Rights and post-Civil Rights movements in which popular black artists made records filled not only with visionary, avant-garde sounds, but with a social expansiveness, a fire and ambition to say something important to and for a community. Reviews put this record in a line with those artists: Sly Stone, Marvin Gaye, Miles Davis, Stevie Wonder and Funkadelic.
