The second single from Robert Glasper’s much anticipated June 16th Blue Note Records trio album is upon us. We pretty much said all we could about Covered when we posted the first single, a cover of Radiohead’s “Reckoner”, and before that when we posted about Glasper touring the Steinway factory. After a couple listens, we can ascertain, in complete humility, that the album attains dope as fuck status. Check out the second single from Covered, a cover of Jhené Aiko’s “The Worst” featuring as always Vicente Archer on bass and Damion Reid on drums. You can pre-order the album on iTunes and Amazon if you like what your hear. Also check out the trio’s tour dates at the bottom of the post.
