New music is slowly being leaked from multi-talented Raphael Saadiq’s newest project, The Way I See It (due September 16th on Columbia Records). The new album definitely has a throwback Motown feel (with new promo photos to match).
Saadiq on the inspiration for the album:
“I was cooling out and surfing in Costa Rica and The Bahamas,” recounts Saadiq, “and ran into people from all kinds of places. I noticed everybody was listening to classic soul music. When I came back home the music for this album flowed organically, naturally. Since I have my own studio, I was able to perfect it, take my time to make it right. I was able to live with it, day after day and that had a lot to do with how the album turned out.”
Shout out to Dope Joints for sending this one over. For more info on Raphael’s newest project, click the link above..
