J Dilla's camp shared another track from the upcoming release, The Diary, which collects never before heard vocal tracks the late artist recorded in the early 2000s.

You can now listen to the glistening 'Diamonds (The Shining Pt. 1)', produced by Nottz. It's a joyous listen and a reminder of what we lost.

'Diamonds' will be paired up with 'Ice (The Shining Pt. 2)' (produced by Madlib) and an instrumental track 'The D' (that Dilla was unable to record vocals over) on the upcoming Diamonds & Ice EP out next month. Initial pressings of the EP will be on clear vinyl and the sleeve will feature art from Shepard Fairey and B+.

Diamonds & Ice EP drops August 27 via Pay Jay, an imprint controlled by the Dilla estate and family. The Diary was originally scheduled out this past spring, but this EP makes us hopeful for news soon.
