Why did Erykah Badu choose an EP instead of a full-length album with her latest effort ‘Worldwide Underground’? “I wanted to do something brave,” Badu told Billboard. “I just didn’t have enough songs at the time we started recording. So I grabbed five songs from my tour to put out a quick EP. But the project took longer as I began mixing, rerecording and finalizing songs. I have equipment on the tour bus. So every night I’d listen to music and to the show the night before, perfecting the next day’s show. More ideas started coming, and by then I had eight songs. But it was already negotiated as an EP, so I don’t call it an album.”
