The world seems to be beating me down day by day, but every once in a while you get a bit of news that shines through the clouds. A posthumous album by Charles Bradley was today’s ray of sunshine. The track below is everything you want and the video makes me miss him even more. Here’s some info on the album from his PR team.

Black Velvet is a celebration of Charles Bradley, lovingly assembled by his friends and family at Dunham/Daptone Records. Though chronologically the material spans Charles’ entire career, this is no anthology, greatest hits or other shallow rehashing of the songs that already made him famous. Rather, this album is a profound exploration through the less-travelled corners of the soulful universe that Charles and his longtime producer, co-writer and friend Tommy “TNT” Brenneck created in the studio together over their decade-long partnership.
