Album Watch: Restarting All Over Again With Bilal

Friday, August 20, 2010

I'm a highly impatient person, but I've been doing so good this past year with my patience. So run and tell Santa that. Let's see...I waited for Maxwell and Sade, and I'm still waiting on something in the form of an album from Esthero and Van Hunt. Now gladly I can cross Bilal off of my "Wait For It...Okay, Nevermind" list. Bilal fans know that they have been waiting for ten long years and a unreleased album (the viciously ignored Love For Sale) ago for the soul man to properly return.

I have been knowing for some time that Bilal was on the return, yet I have been massively lazy in even composing a post about Mr. Oliver...well, my arse is in gear. I owe it all to aptly hearing "Restart", the brand new (not so new) song from Bilal's upcoming, Airtight's Revenge album. And well, this energized percussion driven funk joint  is just the tip of the iceburg...I can just sense that especially since the Philly bred  singer tossed around the words:  "progressive" and "electric" in describing Airtight's Revenge, which will be out in stores this September. He says he doesn't do singles, but I'm glad he at least let us know that "Restart" is in some shape of form going to be promoted, and well, "Restart" sounds good...real good. Listen to after the cut it if you haven't gotten a whiff of it yet. And also peek after the cut to soak in a great (and funny) three-part interview where Bilal dishes about life, liberty and the pursuit of Revenge.
