I normally do not just post an album cover without a tracklist or any kind of additional information. But ofcourse there is always room for an exception. This cover screams  “buy me”!! Airtight’s Revenge drops September 14th – get ready. But before you run to your nearest record store be sure to drop by Rotown on the 18th of July to see Bilal perform.

Bilal – Free (Download) by strangefruitmusic

Something especially magical occurs when artists are given free reign to simply create. Choruses give way to bridges. Bridges give way to lengthy improvising. Lengthy improvising gives way to a song taking you on a sonic journey most unexpected. Such isBilal‘s new track “Free” that is not–I repeat not–on the upcoming Airtight’s Revenge. Give it a chance. It unfolds, then gives, then gives some more. Nottz does a great job on the production tip. If this is an indication of what Revenge will bring, I expect a frothfest of rabid proportions once this album drops in September.
