The Associated Press reports that De La Soul will be releasing a new mixtape sometime soon, as well as drop two full length albums later this year.

"We're already in the process of recording two albums," group member David Jude Jolicoeur said during a South by Southwest appearance. "People are still fans, still really love the music and let's do it for them."

They revealed that their mixtape will contain new music, as well as some reworked former hits. They also revealed that one of their full length albums will be recorded with a live band - Los Angeles' Rhythm Roots Allstars.
