Believe it or not, we haven't featured a Bilal track on HNHH since 2012. How that happened, I'll never know. His last LP, A Love Surreal, was indisputably the best neo-soul release of 2013, and, lets be honest, the dude may be paralleled only by D'Angelo for the smoothest vocals in the R&B game. Yet, somehow, someway, all of that talent just managed to slip under our radar. Thankfully, "Sirens II" has arrived to make up for lost time.
A loose drop off Bilal's next full-length (dropping early 2015), the single builds on Adrian Younge's original "Sirens" instrumental (famously sampled on Jay Z's "Picasso Baby), adding silky-smooth vocals to an already solid foundation. Addition production comes courtesy of A Tribe Called Quest's Ali Shaheed Muhammad.
Look for more Bilal to hit our pages as he continues to roll out the new album.
Sirens, sirens, sirens
Sirens have come to take you away
