His newest album Troubadour came out on Tuesday. I am not yet ready to review it (I don't believe in immediate reviews). From first listen, I am not grabbed by it like his first. But, that was expected. I was not grabbed by Pearl Jam's second album because I had heard nothing like their first (however, I still love album #2). A mind can only be completely blown once by an artist. Plus, I learned on his first album that multiple listens are needed to begin to appreciate it's complexity (the mark of greatness).
Luckily for him (and us), he has a major record label which is putting plenty of promotion behind this uber-talented young man. His first single Bang, Bang is the single of the week on iTunes (download it) and NPR is offering a review/ profile of the album where you can download Somalia (his single about the plight of Somali pirates) and listen to 2 other songs.
Some reviewers and critics consider him a cross between Jay Z and Tracy Chapman or Feli Kuti x Eminem x Bob Marley x Mos Def. You decide.
Here is a mini review (you can hear 3 songs).
