The Feb. 11 show celebrates Lo-Fantasy, which is described as “the most wide-ranging collection Roberts has ever written,” thanks to a mix of rock ’n’ roll, funk, house, electronic and African music.
Today the act debuted the track “Shapeshifters.”
“That song is a gateway to a lot of what happens on the rest of the record,” Roberts said. “It was one of the first I wrote for the album, an all-out dance track, and I felt that with a song like this under my belt, I wasn’t going to be pigeonholed into making any one specific kind of record.”
