One look at Leon Bridges' Coming Home album cover tells you that the man has classic sensibilities. Coming from the old school of R&B, he makes music that's organic and fresh. Above, watch his official music video for "Smooth Sailin'" on YouTube.

"Smooth Sailin'" song is one of Bridges' most rocking releases to date, with an uptempo danceable beat and funky saxophone lines. The back-and-forth with a female vocalist is reminiscent of music by the great Ray Charles. Reverb-drenched guitar parts have a really nice blues-rock feel, too. Bridges is well versed in the tradition of soulful pop songs, but he's got a voice and style all his own.

Much like the music video for "Better Man," we see Bridges surrounded by musicians as they perform the song. It's all about the music and the performance.

Coming Home is due out on June 23rd. Pick it up on Amazon (Vinyl, CD).
