Algebra Blessett Cuts Out Her 'Paper Heart'

Thursday, January 23, 2014

It's been a few minutes since we've been blessed with the soulful charms of Algebra Blessett as her guest spot with Esperanza Spalding on the Afro-love fest of "Black Gold" are in my recent memory. Yet I'm glad for her return with Recovery, her long-awaited follow-up to her 2008 debut, Purpose (jeez, it's been that long?), which will be released on January 28th. Over a 'blink-and-you'd-miss-it' sample of Billie Holiday's classic "Good Morning Heartache", Blesset waxes some mighty soulful poetics and it's a direction that I'm really feeling. Seamless and soulful, you can't beat that.
