Vinyl LP pressing. Gold-Diggers Sound is the 2021 album from Leon Bridges. This R&B collection is birthed from extended late nights at the Los Angeles, California studio of the same name. The album celebrates Leon's immersive experience of creating music in the same East Hollywood room where he lived, worked and drank over the course of two years. The soulful collaboration between Leon as an artist and the space itself was so encompassing that he chose to name the album after the soon-to-be legendary complex.
Good Thingis the highly anticipated follow-up to Grammy nominated R&B singer/composerLeon Bridges'breakout 2015 debutComing Home. Produced byRicky ReedandNiles City Sound(Josh Block, Austin Jenkins and Chris Vivion), the goal here was to take Leon's music in a more modern R&B direction while retaining his renowned style. "I loved my experience with Coming Home," says Bridges. "But Good Things allows me to show more of my influences and art. I'm excited to present this diverse group of songs live." The album is introduced by the funky soul number "Bad Bad News" and tender orchestral ballad "Bet Is Not Worth the Hand."
Good Thingis born from the song "Bad Bad News," and its lyrics "They tell me I was born to lose, but I made a good good thing, out of bad bad news." Now, Leon's story is well known; He went from working as a dishwasher and battling on the open mic scene in his hometown, Fort Worth, TX to being a Grammy nominated artist, performing at the White House, attending the Met Gala and appearing on SNL in a period of two years. Now, an artist with more experience, shows us an album that illustrates the path of a man of small opportunity who embraces the world stage.
