'The Retrospection' (mixtape)

Bilal\'The Retrospection\' (mixtape)
Neo-soul singer Bilal is apparently dropping A Love Surreal, the full-length follow-up to 2010's Airtight's Revenge, by Valentine's Day, but the dude has let loose a new mixtape called The Retrospection, in case you can't wait another two months to hear some new work.

You can grab the freebie by heading to Bilal's Facebook page, giving him a "like" and sharing news of the tape with your friends.

Among the tracks on the release is a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Too High," and you can stream that below before you download the mix in full. Unlike Wonder's Innervisions original, Bilal's version features a New Jack Swing drum machine rhythm and a snapping section, but also features some fancy, fleet-fingered keyboard work that would make the composer proud.
