For the first time in nearly 40 years, there's a new Parliament album!

George Clinton, explaining why Medicaid Fraud Dogg was being released under the Parliament banner, rather than Funkadelic: "Because the last album was (2014's) Funkadelic First Ya Gotta Shake The Gate. It's Parliament's turn."

Clinton, who is 76, has announced his retirement effective 2019. Clinton is currently touring with the album, possibly for the last time.
