Bilal – Airtight’s Revenge – Album Preview

It’s a sad comment on the state of the record industry that it has taken nearly 10 years for one of the greatest voices of our generation to release his second album.

After releasing his critically acclaimed debut LP 1st Born Second in 2001, the release of Bilal’s second LP Love For Sale was delayed by his label Interscope who claimed the album lacked commercial potential.  In 2006 Love For Sale was leaked to the internet and Interscope decided to permanently shelve the project, a real shame as the album contained Bilal’s finest work, check out this sample:

Bilal – All For Love:

Fortunately Bilal has teamed up with the L.A. based independent label Plug Research, home to forward think artists like Flying Lotus and Daedelus.  Hopefully this partnership will allow Bilal to fully pursue his vision unencumbered by the record company bullshit that has plagued his career.  Listen to the mp3 previews below, and please purchase Airtight’s Revenge when it drops on September 14th –  buy here.
