Wake Up Everybody

It’s been a few weeks since I last heard about a soulful project being cooked up by John Legend and The Roots. As it turns out, it’s a cover album of old soul songs called Wake Up!, which is supposed to drop sometime in the fall.

Earlier today, John Legend himself tweeted out news about the first single:

Be the first to listen to me & the Roots’ new track “Wake Up Everybody” feat. Common & Melanie Fiona.

The single was posted on People Magazine’s website which you can listen to here.

The Roots/John Legend combination is also featured on the new (and soon to be classic) Roots album How I Got Over. On Doin’ It Again, the Roots sample Legend’s voice from his 2006 track Again, and then feature him on their latest single, The Fire.
