Effervescent and timeless, Meshell Ndegeocello evokes a musical journey filled with spiritual and sound exploration and unyielding love. Having amassed 10 Grammy nominations, along with countless other accolades over her expansive career, the singer-songwriter and bassist’s creativity has only ripened on her eleventh full-length. Comet, Come To Me is propelled by the groove and enhanced by lyrical meditations. It’s hard not to fall prey to the siren sound of this musical multi-threat.
“Comet, Come To Me was a little labor but a lot of love. It was made with my favorite collaborators, and it felt good to channel the sounds in my mind after having Nina in residence for a while,” ” says Meshell, referencing her last album, a tribute to Nina Simone. She is especially inspired by the collaborative process that comes with making an album. “When I’m writing songs and recording the demos, I’m having my own awesome experience in my attic, or on a plane, or in a hotel room, just making my beats on my laptop. Then I get together with these people that I have an intimate musical relationship with, and we bring the songs to life.” - Meshell Ndegeocello
