Stream Kamasi Washington’s Surprise EP ‘The Choice’

Following up his 2015 debut album The Epic with a two-halved sophomore LP, Kamasi Washington’s Heaven and Earth is the realization of internal and external realities – the mind-body dyad – in which the Earth half prophetically urges the cosmic essence of its spiritually-laced Heaven half. The first physical copy pressings of this album came with a surprise, hidden EP titled The Choice which, today, is receiving its own official release via streaming services. Five tracks and almost 40 mins long (much like it’s over-two-hour long mother project Heaven and Earth), The Choice is an intentionally-paced soundscape voyage. Among the three originals, reimagined covers of Carole King and Gerry Coffin’s “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow” (originally recorded in 1960 by the Shirelles) and the Five Stairsteps’ “Ooh Child” (1970) showcase Kamasi’s unboxable brilliance.
