"... shimmies itself with the comforting sounds and warm melodic structures that we’ve come to know from Ndegéocello."
- PopMatters.com

Critically-acclaimed soul singer/rapper and bassist Meshell Ndegéocello honours one of her biggest influences, singer-songwriter Nina Simone on Pour une âme souveraine. She shares the spotlight here with friends, inviting guest vocalists including Sinead O'Connor, Lizz Wright and Cody Chesnutt to join her in the studio. The material on the album was selected specifically to include songs written by Simon so her estate would benefit from royalties.

"It means 'for a sovereign soul.' She was one of the people, but I felt she was like royalty. Simone is our people's Bach. She is the foundation for making popular music interesting and her activist side makes her a heroine to us."
- Meshell Ndegéocello

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
