The fourth quarter of 2011 is going to pack quite a punch with new releases. Just added to the growing heap is Meshell Ndegeocello's ninth studio album, Weather, scheduled for release on November 8th. The eclectic virtuoso returns with another album flaunting her diverse style and meaningful songwriting, which are both showcased on the lead single, "Dirty World." From its opening bassline, you know that Meshell is not here to funk around. The song then rides a soulful wave as she begins singing "The pursuit of happiness has led to clutter" before segueing into an alt-rock sound. The track takes you in so many directions yet you end up at a happy place, especially with Meshell giving this track away for free. The Weather forecast is looking and sounding great.
