Mos Def has set aside Feb. 9 for the release of his new album “The Ecstatic,” via the record label Downtown.  The first single, “Life in Marvelous Times,” will arrive exclusively on iTunes Nov. 4, reports Billboard.      

       The rapper’s last album, “Tru3 Magic,” barely made a ripple upon its late 2006 release via Geffen and has sold just 93,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Its predecessor, 2004’s “The New Danger,” has sold 484,000.      

       Mos Def will perform Oct. 31 in Prague for the European leg of the Rock the Bells tour, alongside Nas, De La Soul, EPMD and the Pharcyde, among others. On the big screen, the artist plays Chuck Berry in the film “Cadillac Records,” due Dec. 5 in U.S. theaters.
