The members of De La Soul have put out music over the last few years (some solo, some features and some collabos with one another) but they have not put out an official De La record since 2004. They’re baaaack….For their first release, they flow over the beat that was used as the intro on disc 2 of Wu-Tang Forever. Check out Get Away featuring “The Spirit of the Wu” and what De La had to say about the track below. Related: De La Soul – The HardKnock TV Interview (Video)

Here’s what Posdnuos had to say about the song:

“I’ve always loved the ‘Intro’ on Disc Two of Wu-Tang Forever – this erie sample with no beat, that they only talked over,” De La Soul’s Posdnuos tells Rolling Stone. “I stumbled on the original sample while crate digging one day, took it straight to the lab and added drums. The feel is definitely gritty, hard and sounds like a Wu record, so out of inspirational respect, we included featuring ‘The Spirit of the Wu’ in the song title.”
