LISTEN: Charles Bradley Wants “Change for the World”

Changes is out April 1 on Dunham/Daptone.

In a sense, every Charles Bradley album has been overdue, and his upcoming release is no different (hence why it made our Most Anticipated Albums list). Bradley announced his third LP, Changes, a couple of months ago with the title track (a Black Sabbath cover), and today he shared the first original tune from the collection.

Really, really emphasizing that the theme of this album involves change, the new track is called “Change for the World,” and is a brutally powerful plea to the people in the canon of “This Is My Country” or “Trouble Man.” It’s gorgeous.

Bradley and His Extraordinaires have also announced an extensive tour. The North American dates are below—you won’t want to miss it.
