J Dilla releasing 12″ single posthumously

Preorders / February 12, 2013

Two tracks recorded by the late J Dilla, titled “Anthem” and “Trucks,” are being pressed onto a 12″ record, which is now up for pre-order. The tracks were found on a tape, shortly after Dilla’s passing in 2006. The single is being pressed on clear vinyl, while being packaged in a plastic sleeve.

The records are expected to be shipped out on or around April 15th. The single is the precursor to a full length of previously unreleased tracks from the artist. You can hear “Anthem,” below.
