In honor of next month’s 25th anniversary of their debut album 3 Feet High and Rising, De La Soul are making their entire catalog available for free download for 25 hours on the group’s website. The download bonanza will begin on Friday, February 14th at 11 a.m. EST until Saturday at noon.
The release of the group’s catalog is the first of numerous upcoming projects. In a few weeks, they’ll post new songs to their site, with You’re Welcome, their first album since 2004′s The Grind Date, expected to be released before summer. Next month will also see the release of Preemium Soul on the Rocks, a six-song EP with three beats each from DJ Premier and Pete Rock. The group is also planning a visit to Detroit to work on an unreleased beat from J Dilla, the prolific producer who passed away in 2006. “Dilla was the Tupac of producers,” says Posdnuos. “He has so many unreleased things that no one has heard. His family knows how vital and important an ingredient his music was to our work.”
