WATCH: Charles Bradley Is Going Through “Changes”
The Screaming Eagle’s third LP Changes will be out April 1 via Dunham/Daptone Records.
Despite the juggernauts that Coachella brings out at night, quite arguably the best set this past year came smack in the middle of the day. It was Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires—dressed to the nines despite the sweltering heat—cooking up an unbelievable performance that was exciting and emotional and exactly what everyone needed. That’s just how Bradley is: making up for lost time at sixty-seven years old, and never missing an opportunity to rope in new fans everywhere he goes.
Finally doing what he was born to do full-time, Bradley has already released two full-lengths, and today he announced that his third album is on the way. Changes, the follow-up to 2013’s Victim of Love, will be out on April Fools’ Day, 2016—no foolin’.
Along with the announcement, Bradley has shared the title track—a cover of the classic Black Sabbath, Vol. 4 ballad (which was released in non-digital fashion for Record Store Day a few years ago)—along with a minimalist, tight-lipped video of the Florida native just staring into your soul, reacting to his music, as he is wont to do.
You can check out that video below.
