Herbie Hancock's next album will feature an array of guests including Kendrick Lamar, Kamasi Washington, Terrace Martin, Robert Glasper, Thundercat, Flying Lotus, Wayne Shorter and more.
"I'm learning a lot from the young people I'm working with," Hancock said. He added, "I never want to stop learning. And I'm not even thinking in terms of: "I'll do this record, get it out there, promote it, do some concerts, and then at some point I'll work on the next record.' These days, you can put out two tracks, then something a little later that's connected to the other two. So where you draw the line is up to the artist. It's a new day."
"I want to make records that point toward the concept of bringing people together and working toward encouraging people to aspire to be global citizens, and not just American citizen, or Italian citizens or Japanese citizens," Hancock said. "To be global, or world, citizens is vital. Because that's what we'll be facing in the future and this whole thing of pitting one country against another - that stuff has to die."
Hancock's next album will mark his first since 2010's The Imagine Project.
