Teen visionary Willow Smith has been dropping allusions to December 11 on Twitter, and now it’s clear why. Willow Smith has dropped her first album, called Ardipithecus. Speaking to The FADER via email, Willow explained the album’s title and concept as follows: "Ardipithecus Ramidus is the scientific name of the first hominid bones found on earth. I wanted to name my musical compilation after it because, while I was making these songs I was in such a transitional state. Digging deep in the soil of my heart and finding bits and pieces of my ancient self that tell stories, which end up being the lyrics to the songs. Ardipithecus is my first album in my entire career and it makes me feel so blessed to be able to share my evolution with the LightEaters as I continue excavating my inner worlds…" "I have an ongoing list of F Q-C songs," Willow said. "These songs were created through characters I have developed within my mind."
