One of the best soul tracks I’ve heard this spring thus far, the new Aloe Blacc single is FIRE!
The glimpse of another track at the end of this video is also impressive, and makes me hungry to see his approach toward the new album. If these two tracks are any indication of the direction he’s taking on this new album, I’m very impressed.
Aloe exhibited chops as far as singing on his debut solo release, but at that point it was still a bit rough at the edges, even though I thought the songwriting was strong. Half the album showcased him emcee skills, while other tracks were more production based. It looks as if he’s concentrating more on the sung vocals on this project, and from what I’ve seen so far it sounds great.
Aloe Blacc’s new album Good Things will be released this spring/summer through Stone Throw Records.
