About her her cover of Whodini’s 1984 hip-hop 'Friends', Meshell states: “I play with a lot of people who play improvisational music and jazz, and I thought it would be fun to take something that they might think of as easy or straight-forward, and do something different with it. And I like how language is morphing, and 'friends' is such a malleable word, I don't even know what it means anymore.”
She has also announced tour dates (see below).
