darkness-and-light

Have you heard this one yet? I was about to write about Steely Dan (Next Post) when I turned on Spotify to discover John Legend’s latest album, Darkness, and Light, with this amazing track. SHUTUP! Listen to this at least three times all the way thru. CHURCH never felt so good.

This one is a heartfelt emotive winner. The redemptive lyric and delivery bring it home to your bones. Truly masterful vocals once again from this gracefully aging Child prodigy. Nice to hear the real again Mr. Legend. Who cares if he has a Uber model spouse who Tweets too honestly? I love this one enough to recommend the rest of the album (yes showing my age) on the basis of the strength of this track alone.
