Experimental hip-hop group De la Soul are working on additional

material for their fifth album, Art Official Intelligence,

including a song with R&B singer Chaka Khan, according to Tommy

Boy Records spokesperson Zuhairah Khaldun. Art Official Intelligence

was originally planned as a series of three CDs to be released over a

stretch of several months in late 1999 and early 2000, but the group is

now undecided as to how much material it will issue, Khaldun said. A May

2000 release is expected, he said. De la Soul's most recent album was

Stakes Is High (1996).
