from relative obscurity after making a living as a James Brown impersanator known as ‘Black Velvet’,  the past few years have been kind to soul revivalist Charles Bradley since aligning himself with the incredible Daptone Records.

Capable of telling a story through little more than the pained affectations in his voice, Bradley is an artist who’s more than worthy of the acclaim that he’s found in recent years with records such as No Time For Dreaming and Victim Of Love. 

Set to release his third full length Changes in April, he’s unveiled the enveloping ‘Change For The World’.

A call-to-arms for the public at large, ‘Change For The World’ sees Bradley exalting his gripes with society’s injustices and malevolent nature over a luxurious foundation of horns and uplifting backing vocals. Expelling his feelings upon the dangers of religion, hate, apathy and more, Bradley’s voice sees him cast aside the James Brown inspired tropes of the past in favour of a powerful vocal style that welcomes comparisons to vocalists such as David Ruffin and Teddy Pendergrass during his time with Harold Melvin & The Bluenotes.

Changes will be released on the 1st April via Daptone Records.
