Speech Planning Second Solo Album

Speech, the founder and former frontman of alt-rap pioneers Arrested

Development, will release his second solo album, Hoopla, in early summer.

The first single, "Clocks in Sync With Mine," is slated to go to radio in late April. The

album, which Speech produced, includes a cover of reggae legend Bob

Marley's "Redemption Song" and features an R&B sound with live instrumentation

that includes a full symphony orchestra and a horn section, according to a statement

from his new record company, TVT. Arrested Development were best known for such hit

singles as "Tennessee," from the group's first album, 3 Years, 5 Months & 2 Days in

the Life of ... (1992). Speech released an eponymous solo debut album in 1996, and

the group officially dissolved that year.
