Acclaimed Fort Worth singer-songwriter Leon Bridges returns this spring with Good Thing, his sophomore album coming out May 4th on Columbia Records.
The two-year run surrounding his debut album Coming Home saw Bridges undgergo a transformation of sorts, from the dapper, suit-clad retro-styled soul singer that won the hearts of the latte-sipping crowd to the cool, commanding and contemporary singer we saw in force at the 2016 Roots Picnic.
From the looks and sounds of the new album teasers, it seems that Bridges is setting his sights further on that bigger crowd for the new record, and a just-announced tour in support of it brings Bridges to show off the goods in a return to The Fillmore Philadelphia stage on Sunday, September 30th.
Tickets for the show go on sale Friday, March 30th, and more information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
Below, give a listen to the two lead-off tracks from the new record — the classic style ballad “Bet Ain’t Worth the Hand” and the slick groover “Bad Bad News” — and preorder Good Thing here.
