Video of the Moment #2814: Leon Bridges

By on Thursday, 29th March 2018 at 6:00 pm

Soul singer Leon Bridges has provided details of his upcoming album out later this spring. ‘Good Thing’, which is likely to be a good description of his new LP, is expected in early May. In the promo video (which is a mini-film, really) for previously revealed album track ‘Bad Bad News’, Bridges himself takes to the floor to throw shapes. But what’s much more amazing about this video is watching the female dancer groove in the most uninspiring place: the drab underbelly of a subway station. It just goes to show that you can create beauty anywhere.

While there’s supposedly a bigger theatrical meaning that the woman is possessed by the beat and she and Bridges are essentially partners without knowing of the other’s existence, I’d rather believe that it’s the power of music that is driving both of them. As a single, ‘Bad Bad News’ is as smooth as honey, the instrumentation jazzy and super cool. Watch the video for the song below. Stay tuned for ‘Good Thing’, available from Columbia Records on the 4th of May. For more on Leon Bridges here on TGTF, follow this link.
