Your Daily Feel Good – The Late, Great Charles Bradley
To much sadness, the world lost the Screaming Eagle of Soul in September 2017. However, we’re left with one last release from Charles Bradley. Black Velvet is a collection for old and new tracks, taken from sessions from his previous albums. One new track is Can’t Fight The Feeling.
To help fans around the world celebrate the Screaming Eagle of Soul’s astounding life, Daptone also recently launched a microsite featuring murals painted by Chicago-based artist Joe Miller (https://thejoemiller.com), dedicated to Bradley located throughout the US. Murals will also be painted by local artists in select cities around the UK and the EU. Visit the site at www.daptonerecords.com/CBforever and see a timelapse video of the first mural going up in Chicago, featuring the album track “Luv Jones” here: https://youtu.be/i39LldsJqUM.
In addition to featuring the murals as they go up leading up to the album release, the site will feature fan photos that use the hashtag #CharlesBradleyForever on social media. Those fans will also be entered into a contest to win a Charles Bradley gift package, with the winner to be announced in late November once all of the murals are completed.
