First Listen…

Hey Good People!

If you want to check out Bilal’s upcoming release before you buy, NPR has the whole album for you.  Click here to listen.

The Strong Songs:

“Restart”– Has a “Prince” feel to me

“All Matter”–Loving this rendition, but the collaboration with Robert Glasper is still my favorite! 🙂

“Little One” & “Who Are You”–Great Lyrics

“Think It Over”– Endearing, Charming; Has a throw-back feel to it

He also incorporates powerful moral tales in several of his songs, in particular “Flying” and “The Dollar”.  I can appreciate the experimentation, but he still keeps it soulful.
