Fresh Stuff from Charles Bradley
In 2011, soul singer Charles Bradley was launched into the public eye with the release of his debut album, No Time for Dreaming, which established him as one of the late-to-be-discovered musical treasures of our time.
His new album, Changes, sees Bradley sharing more tales of struggle, emotional trials, and an abundance of love and goodwill. The title track is his cover of the Black Sabbath track of the same name. For Bradley, the song hits home as only the best songs do.
“I think about the lyrics very closely when I sing ‘Changes’ and get emotional,” he has said. “It makes me think of my mother and the changes in my life since she passed away.”
The song is a masterpiece, a tear-jerker, and a fine example of Bradley’s ability to embrace the rawness of life and turn it into a gem to be shared with all. With rich horns, deep grooves, and Bradley’s rough and sweet voice, it’s one of the most remarkable tracks in recent memory.
