Cody ChesnuTT emerged on the national musical landscape in 2002 with his appropriately-titled The Headphone Masterpiece. Truly a special record from a unique, soulful voice, it left so many wanting more — and even moreso when the Roots covered/collaborated with ChesnuTT on their version of the single, “The Seed.” And though his recorded output in the following years was limited, it’s been less sporadic since 2010. Now, with a new album looming, he joined us in a backyard in Crown Heights, Brooklyn for an intimate performance of his newly released single.
My Love Divine Degree is due out in 2017.
