Sometimes it’s just a joy to see great musicians play, and Leon Bridges seems like he surrounds himself with the best. There’s enough of them in his video for new single “Smooth Sailin’” that it’s a pleasure to watch. And, of course, Bridges himself is a preternaturally talented young performer and takes his rightful place at the center of it all, dressed in a dapper suit while he dances along to the beat. Bridges’ brand of traditional soul music could have beeen made in a past era, but crisp and charming videos like this one make me glad that his time is now. Watch below.
Coming Home is out 6/23 via Columbia.
