Great News: Leon Bridges is Back With "Bad Bad News"

"Bad Bad News" is smirking, shoulder-rolling, scotch-sipping music.

Leon Bridges, the walking embodiment of soul, is back.

Returning with the measured and funky “Bad Bad News,” the single is Bridges' first foray into music since his 2015 breakout debut, Coming Home. Where his debut was suspended upon revivalist threads, “Bad Bad News” finds the singer-songwriter sailing away on a bed of slick grooves and spirited horn accents.

This is smirking, shoulder-rolling, scotch-sipping music.
