Bilal - "Never Be The Same" (Acoustic) On Sway In The Morning

Lenny Kravitz, Grace Jones, Lauryn Hill, Lion Babe, Thundercat, SZA & More Rock The Afropunk Festival 2015 in Brooklyn, NY.

Bilal stopped by Sway In The Morning to chat with Sway and Heather B about soul and his fourth studio album A Love Surreal on February 26th - the date of it's release. The visit was capped by an acoustic performance of "Never Be The Same" - one of a handful of tracks that make up the stellar body of work Bilal intended to convey sound with the three-dimensionality of visual art. What you get is a sonic package that plays like an in-depth, enveloping and extremely personal examination of love. The promo stop in support of the album came ahead of Bilal's more recent performance of Prince's "Sister" with The Roots and Wendy Melvoin during an open rehearsal at City Winery ahead of The Music Of Prince - a tribute to the singer at Carnegie Hall last night.
