As Black Thought explained toward the end of the hour-long interview, “[DJ Premier] and I formed sort of a supergroup with T Bone Burnett and Elvis Costello and Cassandra Wilson, just a really sort of unusual, motley crew of sorts. We’ve been recording this project that’s tentatively called Dopamine. It’s helmed by T Bone Burnett. … It’s weird how the songs sort of come to be, but we come up with some stuff that’s essentially live instrumentation, and Premier is right there and he sort of takes it and chops it up, and we’ve been working in that capacity. I’ve got lots of stuff that Premier and I have recorded in the past year or so.”
