Ronald Bruner Jr. Shares Smooth New Single "Whenever"
This Friday, March 3rd, Ronald Bruner Jr. will release his debut album, Triumph. Brother in blood and arms to both Thundercat and Jameel Bruner (formerly of The Internet,) the Grammy-winning drummer’s released a smooth new single via The FADER today.
Sonically, “Whenever” is almost the diametric opposite of the album’s kinetic first single “Take The Time” dialing the cut back into velvety mid-tempo two-step territory reminiscent of N.E.R.D.’s most dance-floor-friendly moments with Bruner’s voice stretching-out and tenderly commanding the cut with lovelorn severity and all the feels. In a recent interview, the Grammy-winning drummer detailed his debut record and its personnel, a roster that includes big bro, Kamasi Washington (who made up their 2004 group, Young Jazz Giants,) George Duke and Mac Miller, as well as how Triumph is the very natural next phase for the longtime collaborators.
