We enjoy Alice Smith. Like, a lot. Like, so much that we simply can’t wait until we get official new material from her. But lucky for you at home, the wait is nearly over – and made much shorter, thanks to Okayplayer always having your back. On March 19th, the world will finally be able to grab a hold of Smith’s sophomore release, She, but until then we’ve got you covered with a full stream of the album. Only a few weeks ago did we also have the pleasure of chatting with Smith to discuss the new project, her Washington DC roots, and how the birth of her daughter has impacted her work, if you needed a reason to get to know her better. Between upbeat, warm-weather tracks such as “Ocean” and throwback soul cuts like “Loyalty,” Smith displays range and depth that is not only rare in an artist today, rare in any generation. Listen below, be sure to pick She up on March 19th and watch for some behind the scenes of Smith’s duet with Citizen Cope at the recent Prince tribute from Okayplayer TV.
