Charles Bradley Announces New LP w/ Gripping Video For Black Sabbath Cover, "Changes"
On April 1st of 2016, the incomparable Charles Bradley will return to the world with the release of his third studio album, Changes. The record will mark his first long-play release since 2013’s critically-adored Victim Of Love LP and takes its name from a Black Sabbath cover that has become the focal point of his live set (most recently seen toasting to 30 years of Dinosaur Jr. at NYC’s Bowery Ballroom) and was pressed to vinyl as a Record Store Day exclusive 45 back in 2013.
And so, with the album’s announcement, Bradley has released a clip for the new outing’s title-track, finding him tenderly and (very) effectively transmitting the pains of loss and regret without ever mouthing a word. You can watch the new video below, just be sure to stay tuned for all of the appropriate links as we creep up on the official release date for the new album.
