Hear Erykah Badu Duet With Miles Davis On New ‘Maiysha’ – Rolling Stone

“I think Miles would’ve loved Erykah,” pianist and producer Robert Glasper told Rolling Stone recently, during a conversation about Everything’s Beautiful, an upcoming album out May 27 on which he reworked snippets of Miles Davis’ studio recordings to create entirely new tracks. One of the highlights of the release, which stemmed from Glasper’s soundtrack work for Don Cheadle’s audacious Davis biopic, Miles Ahead, is a simmering bossa nova version of “Maiysha” – a song originally released on 1974’s Get Up With It – featuring lead vocals from Erykah Badu.

Hear an exclusive premiere of the track at Rolling Stone.
