Charles Bradley Going Through 'Changes' on Next LP, Premieres New Video
Published Dec 08, 2015Charles Bradley has gone through many changes over his long and storied rise towards a professional singing career, and he'll apparently be detailing more heartaches and pain on his forthcoming third full-length release, Changes. Daptone side-label Dunham Records will slide the confessional collection our way April 1.
The collection is titled after Bradley's previously released cover of Black Sabbath track "Changes," which had first been issued on a Record Store Day 7-inch from 2013. It reappears on the album, with Bradley explaining that Ozzy Osbourne's lyrics have touched him quite deeply.
"I think about the lyrics very closely when I sing 'Changes' and get emotional," Bradley said in a statement. "It makes me think of my mother and the changes in my life since she passed away."
The full details have yet to be released behind Changes, but the record follows the Screaming Eagle of Soul's slightly psychedelic 2013 sophomore LP, Victim of Love.
While we wait for more info, you can watch an intensely emotional video for "Changes," in which Bradley puts a devastating twist on Ozzy's already humbled "I feel unhappy, I feel so sad / I have lost the best friend that I ever had," down below.
