Parliament have released a new album.
Medicaid Fraud Dogg is the group's first studio full-length since 1994's Dope Dogs, and it was released today. (The last LP to bear only the Parliament name was 1980's Trombipulation.) The 23-track LP includes a verse from the rapper Scarface, and horn players Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, Greg Thomas and Bennie Cowan. It's available on streaming sites such as Apple Music and Spotify.
The bandleader, George Clinton, is also working on an album for Flying Lotus's Brainfeeder label, with a release date TBC.
Funkadelic, effectively an alias for Parliament, released their last album, First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate, in 2014. It was the last P-Funk LP to feature the Parliament-Funkadelic cofounder Bernie Worrell, who died in 2016.
