The enigmatic Leon Bridges has returned to our ears with a suitably soulful track ‘Bet Ain’t Worth The Hand’ but to add to that he’s dropped another beautiful song on top. ‘Bad Bad News’ completes the offering from one of the smoothest men in music.
Having recently shared the tracks on Zane Lowe’s Beats1 Radio show, Bridges is looking set to follow up his brilliant, and hugely acclaimed, debut album Coming Home with another smokey, sultry release.
Although no details were fully confirmed regarding it’s release date, the new tracks speak loudly of another polished gem in the offing. ‘bad Bad News’ is gentle and silky while ‘Bet Ain’t Worth The Hand’ feels a little more tear-stained.
The songs are typical of not only Bridges sound, rooted firmly in yesteryear which a touch of soul, r’n’b and heaps of class, but also of his evolution, as he continues to explore the lyrical space more fully.
Take a listen to the two new tracks below and get ready for that album out very soon.
