New Song + Video : Charles Bradley : The World (Is Going Up In Flames)

Charles Bradley may be the newest kid in the Daptone stable, but he’s no Johnny-come-lately to the music biz. After nearly four decades of splitting time between chasing his musical dreams and straight job drudgery, Bradley was “discovered” in a Brooklyn club performing under the handle Black Velvet.

On January 25th Dunham Records (an imprint of Daptone) will release No Time For Dreaming, a hard-hitting collection of good-footin’ soul workouts backed by The Menahan Street Band (featuring members of the Dap-Kings, Antibalas, The Budos Band, El Michels Affair, and Lee Fields and the Expressions). Trust me, first single The World (Is Going Up In Flames) is only a warning shot.
