Raphael Saadiq’s Stone Rollin’ Out Now + MP3

Stone Rollin’ – written and produced by Raphael Saadiq, who also plays bass, mellotron, keys, guitar, percussion and even drums on most of the tracks – is even more powerful, urgent and bold than The Way I See It (2008). The new songs are firmly planted in classic R&B, and nod to Saadiq’s heroes like Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Little Walter and Sly Stone, with his own contemporary spin.

Stone Rollin
‘ features its share of special guests too. Robert Randolph dropped by to lay down some nasty steel guitar on “Day Dreams.” Guesting on “Just Don’t” is Larry Dunn from Earth, Wind, and Fire, plus one of Saadiq’s indie rock favorites, Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon. Another standout track is “Good Man,” which brilliantly blends golden age soul with a killer hip hop hook, co-written and sung by upstart Taura Stinson. The new album is in stores today – get yours now!

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.
