Technically Yours, Like The Roots Album, 'Undun?' There Is An App For That

Yesterday, I posted a stream of the forthcoming album 'Undun' from The Roots, which will be released December 6 on Def Jam.  To promote the album, The Roots decided to follow in the footsteps of Bjork and release an iphone app of the album.  The iPhone app version of 'Undun' will not be as advanced as Bjork's iPad app, but it will be  a very unique presentation. 

The un(dun) app is a companion piece to the The Roots 2011 (Island Def Jam) release undun. Through the use of photos, lyrics, a series of interviews and music video vignettes, the app provides an immersive experience that elucidates the life and times of one Redford Stephens (1974-1999), a complex youth who struggles to define himself within a troubled inner city milieu and dies in the process.

The 'Undun' app will be available as a free download for iPhones for a limited time.
