The release of the new De La Soul album, and the Anonymous Nobody…, is steadily approaching at the end of this month. We have already received a few tracks from the album like “Royalty Capes” and the Snoop Dogg collab of “Pain.” Now we have “Drawn,” a new five and a half minute song featuring Little Dragon. While the track begins with a simple piano motif accompanied by delicate airy vocals, it builds with evolving percussion and an orchestral enveloping of cellos and violins. The beats combine with a classic De La Soul presence at the end and before you know it we are quickly back to that piano motif. Listen to the song here, and get ready for the album release on August 26.
