Leon Bridges makes a “good thing out of bad news” on his new record, which is light on politics, but as Esquire notes: “It’s not that Bridges doesn’t have his opinions—we’re living in a time of ‘bad leadership’ he says, succinctly, before remarking that we’re also in a time of oversharing when it comes to our vitriolic stances—but it didn’t feel right here. ‘What do people want me to do? Write F-Trump songs? That’s not effective,’ he says before cautioning, ‘The time will come and whenever I put that energy into a song, it’s because that’s right thing to do. It will be because I’m passionate about it.'” And that’s a GOOD THING. Read the Esquire interview and go behind the scenes with Leon Bridges.
