Far Out’s favourite new soulful voice Leon Bridges has made his debut album Coming Home available to stream for a limited time ahead of its release.
Keen readers will probably already be well aware of single releases like ‘Better Man’ and the album’s title track, which see the Texan artist channel the smooth soulful vibes and encapsulating tone of the likes of Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson.
Throw in some catchy choruses and production team that included members of stateside blues-rockers White Denim, and you’re most certainly onto a winner.
It could be said the record isn’t exactly reinventing the wheel, but must it? In this case it definitely seems to be a scenario of ‘it it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’.
Listen to ‘Better Man’ below.
