    Last October, Esperanza Spalding released 12 Little Spells, an album she shared piecemeal over the course of 12 days. Now, the bassist has released a deluxe version that features four more songs.

    Every track on 12 Little Spells corresponds to a specific body part or region, and with these additions, Spalding addresses blood (on “Lest We Forget”), hair (“How to”), joints (“Move Many”) and shoulders (“Ways Together”).

    Spalding also dropped a gorgeous video for “Lest We Forget,” which finds her tethered by numerous red threads as she explores a mossy forest. Watch it below:
