First Listen: Rahsaan Patterson returns with something "Wonderful"

(June 3, 2018) Okay, it doesn't overstate it to see we're having a hankering for Rahsaan Patterson. It has been eight years since the extremely talented singer and songwriter issued his last album, bleuphoria, and, while we've heard a new song now and then, it hasn't been nearly enough.

Well, over the weekend, the SoulTracks Readers' Choice Award winner posted a new song on Soundcloud, and it reminded us why we fell in love with his music in the first place.

"Wonderful Star" is a gentle, loping number with subtle guitar and keyboards and that most recognizable voice upfront and a call-and-response with the backing singers. It is just the kind of return we hoped to receive from Rahsaan, and we just love it.

We're proud to present "Wonderful Star" as our latest SoulTracks First Listen. Check it out below and let's all hope for more new music from the great Mr. Patterson.
