He soared into the hearts of all that had the profound pleasure of seeing or hearing his scorched squall. And now his label, Brooklyn’s Daptone Records, has released a touching en memoriam as a final farewell. The clip centers on footage from a trip to Austria circa 2014, where Bradley found divine inspiration in the halls of a middle-aged church. He performs the song “Victim of Love” to an onlooking audience of locals and shares thoughts on his faith and a heroic career, as archival footage of him with late labelmate, Sharon Jones, holds the screen. Jones died late last year of her own complications with cancer.
