[ Big Crown / 2 CD ]
Release Date: Friday 5 April 2019
It Rains Love is the second album by Lee Fields & The Expressions on Brooklyn's Big Crown Records and gives us yet another masterclass in soul.
Traditional soul sensibilities are mixed with a hip-hop tinged, sample ready sound that is as much an homage to the old as to the new. Some of the songs sound like they could belong to any of the last 4 decades without it feeling like a throwback, while others are 60's soul through and through. Lyrically, Lee runs the gamut from gushing admonishments of love to politically charged calls to action, from proclamations of God's existence to love letters written to his wife.
Double CD includes instrumental version of the album.
