CURRENT: Leon Bridges – “Coming Home”

There’s nothing necessarily new about “Coming Home,” one of two songs Leon Bridges uploaded to Soundcloud recently. The song takes its cues from the likes of Sam Cooke and Jackie Wilson, and there’s a hint of current day artists such as Alabama Shakes and Michael Kiwanuka. But it’s the assured quality of “Home” that makes it resonate, with Bridges mending the gap between the past and present. You don’t always have to re-invent the wheel. Sometimes, it’s nice to just remember how it all began.
