On April 5, Lee Fields & The Expressions will release their seventh album It Rains Love.
Since his first release in 1969, Fields has been a prominent member of the soul scene, with many drawing comparisons between his voice and that of James Brown. In recent years, rappers like A$AP Rocky, J Cole and Travis Scott have even sampled Fields’ music to create funk and soul-laden beats.
According to a press release, It Rains Love is “a fitting showcase for the expressive verve and love-obsessed philosophy of the godfather of New York’s soul revival.”
