Label: Daptone Records
Just over a year ago, we lost one of this decade’s most uniqueÂ talents, vocally and musically.Â TheÂ sui generisÂ of soul, Charles Bradley waited a long time before he got the spotlight, but we’re all grateful that we were around for it.Â Lucky for us, he left more incredible music to he explored after his untimely death.Â Aptly titled Black Velvet, Daptone Records is proud to present Charles Bradley’s final album.Â If newest singleÂ I Feel A Change is any indication, it’s going to be another gorgeous record.Â You know it, I know it.
Daptone has a limited quad-color vinyl variant as well as a super deluxe boxset.Â Listen to I Feel a Change below and grab your vinyl of choice (or both) after the ‘buy’ link.
