Today, Bilal is Free!!!!!

12 08 2010

Check this video of Bilal singing the Donny Hathaway classic, Someday We’ll All Be Free. The original remains one of my all-time favourite tunes and still sends shivers done my spine. It may even be the greatest soul track of all time. No pressure then! But I think Bilal and the the Miguel Artwood-Ferguson Ensemble have acquitted themselves pretty damn well here. I think you’re sure to enjoy it.

Listening to this cut, it’s apparent that Bilal has one of the most unique voices in contemporary soul music. Having listened to snippets and a few cuts off Airtight’s Revenge (Bilal’s new album to be released early September), it sounds like we might have a future classic on our hands.

In the meantime, treat yourselves to a free download of Someday We’ll All Be Free right here, courtesy of the crazy talented Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. Ain’t that nice?
