Erykah Badu returns to New Amerykah!

Taken from press release:::
Universal Motown Records multi-platinum-selling, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter-actress ERYKAH BADU will release her fifth studio album, New Amerykah, Part II: Return of the Ankh, on February 23, 2010.
“With Part I, I was standing at an apex, looking at what was going on around me politically, socially, and economically,” Badu explained. “With Part II, I’m hovering over me, looking at what’s going on inside of me.”

In advance of the album’s release date, ERYKAH BADU hosted a series of intimate candlelit listening sessions for press and VIPs at Chung King Studios in New York City on December 9 and December 10, 2009. Universal Motown President Sylvia Rhone, R&B star Ryan Leslie, British pop sensation Corinne Bailey Rae, hip-hop impresario Damon Dash, and rapper-producer Jay Electronica were all on hand for the exclusive preview, where the self-proclaimed “analog girl in a digital world” gave listeners insight into her creative process:”When I write songs, the music always comes first;otherwise, it would be poetry.” she explained.
