New Erykah Badu

This week, Grammy award winning vegan songstress Erykah Badu releases her fifth studio album.

On Tuesday, multi-talented vegan rock star Erykah Badu released her fifth studio album, New Amerykah Part Two: Return of the Ankh. The album is a companion to Badu's 2008 record, New Amerykah Part One: Fourth World War, and includes similar themes and ideas as the previous album. In January, Badu released a song with popular rapper Lil Wayne, but the track does not appear on the new album, as it does not correspond with the messages and tone. Badu recently performed at legendary music festival South by Southwest, and will be touring this spring and summer in support of her new record.
