Hoping for a life more sweeter, Instead I’m just a story repeating. Why do I fear with skin dark as night? Can’t feel peace with those judging eyes. New collaborative single between the Texas singer Leon Bridges, and L.A. jazz artist Terrace Martin. It was recorded in 2019, but was released this week because according to Bridges in a statement, “I cannot and will not be silent any longer. Just as Abel’s blood was crying out to God, George Floyd is crying out to me.”

"I'm currently sitting here, trying to write his eulogy. (His funeral is next Monday) Not a task I'd ever thought I'd have to do. Despite how hard this is, thinking back to cherished memories is bringing a smile through my tears... I would love it if you could play 'Champagne Supernova' by Oasis. He was a big fan and saw them many times, including their legendary set at Kneborth park all those years ago. Thank you John & KEXP for everything you do today & everybody. I know I am not alone..." - Ragen, this one's for you and your brother, we're so sorry for your loss.
