Rap legends De La Soul are back, and with a superb cut to mark their return. New single ‘Get Away’, featuring ‘The Spirit Of The Wu’ catapults the group back into the mainstay with a significant East Coast/West Coast vibe.

Speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, De La Soul’s Posdnuos (aka Kelvin Mercer) speaks of the track:

“I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums…. The feel is definitely gritty, hard, and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.”

Check it out below. ‘Get Away’ will be on the group’s forthcoming LP ‘You’re Welcome’, due out this year.
