Leon Bridges Announces New Album Good Thing, Shares 2 New Songs: Listen | Pitchfork
Fantastic news! Thanks!
Looking forward to listening to the 2 new songs later tonight on Spotify.
They are on Youtube now (see first post for one of them).
I’ll keep an eye out for this. The title might be a little unfortunate given the Aloe Blacc album Good Things
Loving both of the songs.
Very much looking forward to this album.
He sounds much more seasoned, relaxed and confident. His vocals and the instruments are now meshing. I was a fan of his voice before but not the music. It seemed that they didn't understand the genre and were just playing notes. These two tracks are music, very good music. If the remainder of the album is as good, I am buying.
I'm not sure about these two tracks, they sound too modern R&B for what I enjoyed about his previous work. I loved his debut album, but these sound more Usher than Sam Cooke.
I don't hear that modern sound, but I agree there's less of the retro Sam Cooke vibe from the first album. The second track reminded me of something by Paul Simon actually.
I liked The River, which was in the Big Little Lies TV series (along with some great stuff by the likes of Charles Bradley and Michael Kiwanuka). Hope he is still retro.
I really liked his first album. And I dig these two tracks.
Here's hoping for his first number one album.
The sound has nudged further away from the Sam Cooke's R&B. While Mr. Bridges may a be great fan of Mr. Cooke and the music of that time 1) He has been immersed in the music of this time and 2) I really think that he needed to hone his craft more. I like the two tracks that have been released and will probably buy the album when it is released.
Nice. I was not sure how his second album would turn out but it sounds great so far
This is great! Love the string arrangement!
I dig Bad Bad News, Bet Ain't Worth the Hand sounds quite a bit different, more modern. Either way I dig his throwback style tunes.
Separate names with a comma.
