Raphael Saadiq – “Good Man” (New Single)

Following the video for his first single, “Radio,” another Raphael Saadiq track hit the web this week: “Good Man.” It would be near impossible to top his 2008 album The Way I See It, but these new ‘aggressive rock n roll’ style tracks are a good sign. Plus rumored featured guests on Saadiq’s Stone Rollin’ include Robert Randolph and Yukimi Nagano (Little Dragon). Stone Rollin’ will be released by Columbia Records on March 22nd.
