Valentines Day is here and love and mystery are in the air with secret admirers and lovers seemingly everywhere. There is nothing secretive about who we’re loving at DT today as De La Soul have literally made our day by announcing their Valentines Day give away. Not a free track, not an album by giving away their ENTIRE back catalogue for free the legendary hip hop trio have raised the bar in the giveaway stakes to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their classic 1989 debut 3 Feet High and Rising.
Yes you did read that correctly, De La Soul will be making their entire discography available for free download but be quick as the offer is only available for 25 hours, from Friday, February 14th at 11am EST until Saturday at noon.
“It’s about allowing our fans who have been looking and trying to get a hold of our music to have access to it,” De La Soul’s Posdnuous told Rolling Stone. “Its been too long where our fans haven’t had access to everything. This is our way of showing them how much we love them.”
Following the giveaway comes further good new for fans as they’ll continue to release new songs in the run-up to You’re Welcome, the long-delayed follow-up to 2004′s The Grind Date, which is slated for a pre-summer release a new EP featuring beats by DJ Premier and Pete Rock entitled Preemium Soul on the Rocks.
“We have tons of music, but we’re our own worst critics,” Posdnuous says of the delayed releases. “Certain groups have too many ‘yes men.’ In our group, we have too many ‘no men.’ When we look back on some of the stuff we have, we’re like, ‘Yo, we need to just put this out.’”
And they’re not done: “We also have this whole other album that we’re working on that… Wooo, I wish I could talk about it,” We can’t wait guys…
