José James - EveryLittleThing

Posted 2 years ago
Album:
While You Were Sleeping

Some people (especially artists) work best in an atmosphere of barely-controlled chaos. José James prefers to have EveryLittleThing in its natural place. That precision and conscientiousness extends to the Minneapolis-born singer/songwriter’s work, as evidenced by the latest single off his fifth studio album. Each and every little element of this slow-burning alt-R&B banger—from the understated vocals, to the caustic lyrics, to the tense, intricate synth beat—fits together to form an exquisitely crafted musical machine. Interest piqued? More fresh, innovative tunes are just around the corner. James’s While You Were Sleeping LP is set for release via Blue Note Records on Tuesday, June 10.
