Robert Glasper Partners with Emeli Sande on ‘Somebody Else’

Robert Glasper Somebody Else
Blue Note Records

Jazz pianist Robert Glasper is on a roll. After dropping his abstract video for ‘Calls,’ he releases another fantastic song from his upcoming album, ‘Black Radio 2.’ The Grammy-winning artist gives us the melodic ‘Somebody Else’ featuring the angelic vocals of Emeli Sande.

At this point, Glasper can do no wrong in our book. The tune features bittersweet keyboards, on-time drumming and echoic soundscapes.

On the song, Sande’s vocals are calm but still full of emotions as she sings about reinventing herself after a painful heartbreak.

“I got a new church, new preacher / Every Sunday I pray for amnesia,” she sings. “I need a new hard mood doctor / Don’t care how much it cost you just gotta / Help me stop the hurtin’ / Help me be a different person,” she sings.

So far, The Robert Glasper Experiment has released ‘I Stand Alone‘ (featuring Common & Patrick Stump), ‘Calls’ (featuring Jill Scott) and ‘Let it Ride‘ (featuring Norah Jones).

After listening to all of these aforementioned tracks, it’s safe to say that Robert Glasper’s new album is going to be amazing.

You can pre-order ‘Black Radio 2′ at iTunes before it’s official release on Oct. 29.
