The new album from Dwele, Sketches of a Man is about 6-weeks away from release, on July 24th – his debut album in a new deal with KOCH Records.
The immediate indication by a listen to the sampler is that an independent record deal has allowed Dwele to create music more close to his desire, as opposed to working within the restrictions of formula R&B/soul that he’d continually had issues with while on Virgin. The new album brings Dwele back to a more gritty, experimental, and non-overproduced sound – one that originally caught peoples ears with his first EP demo Rize released in 1998.
Take a listen to snippits from the full length Sketches of a Man below – in stores June 24!
