All-star partners help Eric Roberson's extended "Lessons"

(October 22, 2021) Last Spring, we wrote about Eric Roberson's new single, "Lessons." It is a touching song that reflections on the ups and downs in life, and how sometimes events that we didn't want at the time come back around and become some of life's most important learning experiences. It is undoubtedly one of the best songs of 2021, and is nominated as Song of the Year in the SoulTracks Readers' Choice Awards.

Now Roberson brings the song back in a remixed format that brings along some of the biggest names in independent soul, Anthony Hamilton, Kevin Ross, and Raheem DeVaughn. Roberson says, "With the remix, I didn’t want to just get three of my favorite singers, I also wanted three of my favorite writers. I’m honored to get their perspectives on the ups and downs of love and how it all leads us to where we are supposed to be."

The four talented singers trade verses, with each giving their own personal perspectives on their own hard earned wisdom. And they clearly enjoyed working together on the song. Ross shares, "I'm honored to be on the Lesson Remix with such seasoned vets in the game. Each artist's perspective and approach on this record is different, which makes it exciting to listen to. Eric is a mastermind in how he put this together."

This is a worthy extension of a song that every SoulTracker should hear. Check out "Lessons (Remix)" below. It is a preview of Roberson's forthcoming 14th studio album, entitled "LESSONS". The album will be released in January, 2022, via the B.L.U.E. ERRO SOUL label imprint.
