In addition, the band is working on a track that samples Joanna Newsom's  "Book of Right-On," a track from her 2004 album "The Milk-Eyed Mender." Contrary to reports, Newsom has not recorded with The Roots and appears on the record only in sampled form.
The Roots have been recording "How I Got Over" in between holding down a day job as the house band for "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon " and serving as the backing band on new albums for John Legend and, as previously reported, soul legend Booker T.
No release date is set for "How I Got Over," but the album is expected to come out in 2010.
