Sam Evian has released another short, sweet single off his fast-approaching debut album, Premium. "I Need a Man" is a mellow, retro-styled pop tune, built on a deep bass groove and complete with funky horns and strings reminiscent of Sly & The Family Stone. This follows "Sleep Easy."
The smooth, high-register vocals and oblique lyrics ("I need a man I can trust / A hand to hold / A way to grow older") belie a sarcastic but heartfelt song which, in the words of the artist's label bio, "calls for an end to the tyranny of ignorance, racism, sexism and violence, written after a number of stories of sexual abuse in the music industry." Right on, Sam.
Premium is scheduled for release on September 30, 2016 via Saddle Creek Records. Pick it up on Amazon.
