As the October 28th release date of Robert Glasper Experiment's Black Radio 2 draws nearer, the singles keep on coming. The group just released their third single from the album, "Let It Ride", co-written with Muhsinah and featuring Norah Jones on vocals with a sound that's as close to her early days in New York City over a decade ago as ever. Seriously, if you've ever had a hankering for some early '00s Wax Poetic, this tune hits squarely in the pocket. It's also one of the jazzier tunes from Glasper's upcoming album that's taking this R&B sound and running headlong into it. Check out the track before (on repeat even, it's that dope) and make sure to cop it on iTunes.

Black Radio 2, the sequel to the Grammy award-winning Black Radio, is out October 28th on Blue Note Records (and the 29th in the States).

Oh, also shout out to RGX saxophonist/vocoderist/beehive enthusiast Casey Benjamin whose birthday is today!
