THEESatisfaction Announce New Album, Celebrate “Recognition”

December 01, 2014

Been a minute since we've heard from Seattle abstract R&B duo THEESatisfaction—specifically, since their intriguing 2012 debut awE naturalE—but on February 24 they return with a new full-length, EarthEE. The record will feature contributions from Porter Ray, Taylor Brown, Meshell Ndegeocello, Erik Blood, and Shabazz Palaces—the latter two of which feature on the record's first single, "Recognition."

"'Recognition' is a message of self assurance and ultimate belief," THEESatisfaction told FADER in an email. "Its purpose is to encourage confidence as well as to celebrate those who inspire us. Within it we give praise and respect to our ancestors. Its a daily mantra to stay aligned with your path." Check out "Recognition" and EarthEE's tracklist and cover art below.
