After an extensive European run, Daptone legend Charles Bradley kicks off his North American tour this week. Along with his latest LP, Victim of Love, concertgoers might also get a chance to hear this new song entitled “Ain’t It A Sin”. A B-side off his recently released (but now sold-out) Record Store Day 7-inch, the song features The Bullets and showcases Bradley strutting his ever-magnetic and kinetic soul. Obviously, it would be 10x cooler to see him perform it live, but I’ll be damned if the track’s spirited funk doesn’t bring to mind a high-kicking, splitting, and animated Bradley. Listen in below.
