Woo Wee! An Al Green News Flash!
Make sure you get on over to Soul Sides as quickly as you can: O-Dub's posted a preview from Al Green's forthcoming Blue Note album Lay It Down, which is scheduled for a May 27 release. I'd heard about this one for awhile: I'd read an interview with the Rev. Al where he mentioned that he had hooked up with The Roots' ?uestlove on a new album that was, if I recall Green's phrase, "as fresh as milk straight out the cow's titty." Well, if the previewed track, "You Got the Love I Need Babe," a collaboration with neo-soul star Anthony Hamilton, is an accurate indicator of what this album (which also includes collaborations with John Legend and Corinne Bailey Rae) is going to be like, I'm more than excited to hear it!
