Q-Tip Working On New Album The 'Renaissance'; Offers First Single Free
The single, which will be available to download and stream for free at www.myspace.com/qtipmusic on Wednesday, is the first song off of Q-Tip's forthcoming album, The Renaissance.
"'WorkItOut' is a feel-good song. It is indicative of The Renaissance; thought-provoking, dance-friendly, fun and last but not least Hip-Hop," Q-Tip said in a statement.
The Renaissance is the follow up to Q-Tip's unreleased 2002 album Kamaal The Abstract.
The rapper's debut solo release, Amplified, featured the hit singles "Vivrant Thing" and "Breathe and Stop."
Most recently, Q-Tip has collaborated with a host of artists on a variety of projects, including Hi-Tek, Busta Rhymes, Janet Jackson, RZA, Mariah Carey and Rhymefest.
As for The Renaissance, The Motown Records release will include a mix of samples and a live band.
The Renaissance is scheduled to arrive in stores in October.
