Esperanza Spalding accepting her She Rocks Award at NAMM 2017

By Myki Angeline

Esperanza Spalding has just announced she will be recording a new album on September 12. Fans who follow Spalding on Facebook should select that ‘notifications’ button because we are all in for a treat. For 77 hours, she will record, write, create, and compose Exposure from scratch. No plan. No layout. Live on Facebook. In a press release, Spalding said, “I foresee that creating before a live audience will add excitement and extra inspiration energy. Knowing someone is watching and listening to what you’re making seems to conjure up a sort of ‘can’t fail’ energy.”

Spalding won the ‘Inspire’ award at the 2017 She Rocks Awards this past January. You can watch her captivating acceptance speech here: Esperanza Spalding Accepts Award

Although the release date for Exposure is yet to be announced, the album is set for release on vinyl and CD via Concord.
