?uestlove to Produce Al Green’s New Album
“Lay It Down,” Green’s first studio album since 2005’s “Everything’s OK,” features co-production by Ahmir “?uestlove” Thompson and keyboardist James Poyser. The set, which is due in stores May 27, also features guest shots from John Legend, Corinne Bailey Rae and Anthony Hamilton, among others.
“I’ve never heard anything quite like it, ’cause I’ve never had anybody produce me other than Willie Mitchell,” Green told Billboard.com last summer. “And when you give these young kids a shot at it, it’s interesting to see the art they make. It’s beautiful.”
