For those of us looking to deviate from the holiday season’s consumption compulsion, Brooklyn’s Truth & Soul records has got our back. They’re offering up a free download of a Lee Fields single off is upcoming LP release, Faithful Man. Yes, you can tell that special someone you love them with out a luxury vehicle or diamond. With a throwback funky feel, the track could be the perfect paperless gift. Over a luscious groove laid down by The Expressions, Mr. Fields croons silky gold lyrics that you’ll want to inscribe on the inside of your eyelids: “I never met a girl so cool, so fine, so in control — lookin’ like a center fold!”
With over four decades of experience performing alongside an impressive list of funkateers (a few: Kool and the Gang, O.V. Wright, and Darrell Banks) Fields collaborated with with The Expressions for a 2009 full-length, My World. On that record Fields promised to pilot soul music into the now, and from listening to this first single, Faithful Man will deliver on that promise.
