Audio: WZRD "Love Hard"

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.wzrd-cover (1)

Critical reaction emanating from the listening sessions for WZRD have been mixed--mostly because a lot of them seem to consist of Kid Cudi shushing people who are talking over the music. So far I am pretty positive on all the music that has made its way to the inter-ear but I can see that it is in some ways get-in-your-head music, rather than something you focus all your attention on like it was an opera aria or something. That's still true for "Love Hard" (stream below) which has more of a clubby, uptempo feel than anything we've heard thus far--it's almost asking you to zone out, talk or live your life while the music provides the soundtrack. WZRD drops February 28th.
