Info for Coming Home
There’s a certain power in classic soul music–a blend of gospel, blues and folk that can heal the soul in a very real way. That’s exactly what’s at work in “River,” the spacious love song from Texas songwriter Leon Bridges. Built of acoustic guitar, tambourine and (most importantly) Bridges incredible vocals, “River” sings of redemption in the waters of love. It might be a baptism, it might be a first kiss, or it might be the moment when the world heals its wounds–whatever Bridges might be seeking on “River,” it’s a heaven that all of us hope for.
Bridges has been rising in stature for some time now, thanks in no small part to his incredible voice and knack for arrangements that transport us to a bygone era. The 25 year-old singer is often compared to Sam Cooke–and it’s a fair point: his work holds that same soothing quality that’s kept “A Change is Gonna Come” playing strong after all this time. “River” will appear on Bridges’s upcoming debut album, „Coming Home“.
At a time when music’s healing qualities feel more necessary than ever, “River” is a piece of perfect timing from an artist who seems destined for greatness. Listen to it below and give yourself up to sound.
Leon Bridges' first strides as a retro-soul artist prompted comparisons to R&B legends like Sam Cooke and Otis Redding. A singer, songwriter, and guitarist, Bridges performed in and around Fort Worth, Texas and stirred up music industry interest with analog recordings, produced by Justin Block and Austin Jenkins of White Denim, which were uploaded to his SoundCloud page. Signed to major-label Columbia, his first singles — including a rich ballad written about his mother — appeared in February 2015 with a sound that evoked mid- to late-'60s soul. The following month, Bridges caught more attention with a performance at the South by Southwest Festival, roughly 200 miles south of his home base. His debut album, Coming Home, was released in June 2015.
This album contains no booklet.
