Esperanza Spalding Shares A Whimsical New Video For "Unconditional Love"

Esperanza Spalding is a favorite of ours as you’re probably already aware of. We named her latest album Emily’s D+Evolution one of the best releases of 2016 so far, writing:

“Esperanza Spalding’s virtuosity is undeniable. But on D+Evolution it’s put front and center: a fearless 12 song album that shows Spalding going in so many musical directions at once, built on a foundation of funk. Contextually, D+Evolution was something of a rebirth for Spalding. After 2012’s Radio Music Society she took two years off from creating music. ‘See this pretty girl / Watch this pretty girl flow,’ she sings confidently on D+Evolution opener ‘Good Lava.’ Time paid off; she came back stronger than ever and it’s evident as soon as the album begins.

In Prince’s passing D+Evolution feels even more important than it already was, because you can hear his influence throughout — not just musically but in the fearlessness and freedom of it all. Spalding has and will continue to fight for uncontrolled creative expression, and D+Evolution is a testament to that.”

But just in case you don’t believe us (for some strange reason) the talented multi-instrumentalist and singer is embarking on a tour soon that includes a handful of stops across the country. The tour begins on August 13 at the Richmond Jazz Festival in Richmond, Virginia, followed by performances in Nashville, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Chicago.
