Gold-Diggers Sound is the new 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.
“The inception of the song started with this afrobeat-type instrumental that my homeboy Nate Mercerau made,” Bridges said of “Motorbike” in a press release. “Prior to the session, I was in Puerto Rico for my 30th with some of my best friends, and the energy of that trip totally inspired this song. ‘Motorbike’ is about living in the moment and escaping with someone. It’s the personification of that unspoken chemistry you have with that person. A special thank you to my man Anderson .Paak for the stunning visuals.”
Ricky Reed and Nate Mercereau produced Gold-Diggers Sound. Reed also executive produced the record with Bridges, who commented, “This is my most sensual and confident album to date and I cannot wait to unleash it.”
Leon Bridges released his sophomore full-length Good Thing in 2018. Last year, he collaborated with Khruangbin on the Texas Sun EP.
