“We are just trying to figure out the best way to release them, whether it’s going to be one by one, EP or album.”

Kweli also spoke on the latest song “Fix Up,” released by the group on The Colbert Report Showlast month saying, “When you heard “Fix Up” on Colbert, it wasn’t even mixed; it was something we recorded a week before.
