All-time soul great Charles Bradley is busy trailing his new long playing disc ‘Victim Of Love’ – astonishingly, after over 60 years ‘in the game’, only his sophomore LP after 2011′s ‘No Time For Dreaming’ – via its first track ‘Strictly Reserved For You’. He’ll release it (and the LP at large) care of fabled Brooklyn label Daptone Records on 1 Apr.
Bradley’s live/studio collaborator Thomas Brenneck, who produced the new record, says this: “I’ve been calling ‘Victim Of Love’ the ‘New Direction Daptone’. People are not going to expect this. There’s a lot of psych influences on this record, a lot of fuzz guitar. I’m pushing the band and the arrangements further out, which in turn has to make Charles go further out”.
