Erykah Badu Shares But You Caint Use My Phone Details

Her new mixtape came together in just 12 days.

But You Caint Use My Phone arrives this Friday via iTunes/Apple Music and December 4 on other platforms. According to a press release, "each song [on the mixtape] makes reference to telephones and our own reliance on staying inter-connected." The entire project came together in 12 days with the producer Zach Witnessin.

Badu is calling her new sound "TRap & B" (not far from Bryson Tiller's "Trap Soul"). The press release stresses that "Badu and Witnessin dedicated a lot of time to precise mixing work, toying with EQs and other filters so that the sound’s frequency and vibration move in tandem to capture a feeling she refers to as 'sympathetic vibration.' Badu also used a tuning fork and Tibetan singing bowls to fine-tune these details, with the goal of creating a sound that brings peace and tranquility to its listener. It is a sound that Badu herself refers to as a 'whole new frequency' for fans."
