I think they did the interview the day off or day before the Daisy experience.
Nothing set in stone but it sounded like they are planning to release more music and possibly keep touring as De La Soul. Meaning there are Dave verses (no clarification on if they're finished songs or discarded verses) that they are looking to do something with.
They keep making comments on how they are going to handle parts of songs when they perform them now and it seems like Pos really loves performing. I don't think they said anything explicitly about future tours but it does seem like they plan to.

I absolutely despise how badly they handle multiple versions of the same track. So many times a song will come up on I'll be surprised that I haven't already "liked" it. So I'll like it. Maybe I'll add it to a playlist. Later I'll check a playlist or my liked songs and see duplicates. I'll click on each song and they are from different "versions" of the same exact album, one of the versions of the album may even be one that I have saved to my library, but that version is a version of the album that is no longer even visible on the artist's page. I think it has to do when there's new distribution or something, so in order to properly pay out the rights holders each version of the album/song has a new ID and as such Spotify can't recognize duplicates in playlists because they are technically different songs (by ID). It' super annoying.

I really hope they have some unreleased stuff that they release someday. That dude is just so money. And so fun.
I've obviously been listening to De La non-stop since Friday, but today (and most of the weekend) I find myself stuck/going back to "Change in Speak" and "My Brother is a Basehead" more frequently than I ever have.
I just find Paul's layered/evolving samples on these (and others, of course) songs so incredibly creative it's hard to put into words. This dude was rarely just looping a sample or two. Every 20-30 seconds of a song are completely different. He introduces a sample in the first minute, only to not bring it back again until 2 or 3 minutes later. He drops random 3 second snippets of other samples, that are never heard again. I know that other people sampled like this (especially after the fact) but no one ever did it as well as he did IMO.
It's like freestyle beatmaking. Early Dre sampling was similar in that there were a lot of elements that played differently throughout his beats (think Fuck Wit Dre Day's chords throughout, they change constantly). Obviously he was interpolating samples rather than looping them, especially on The Chronic, but that type of jazz-esque approach to beats always appealed/appeals to me, and Paul is a master at it.
