Aloe Blacc began work on his second album for Stones Throw. The album will be produced and recorded by Leon “El” Michels and Jeff Silverman, the production duo/label owners better known by the name of their imprint: Truth & Soul. Demos that Aloe recorded with the El Michels affair in January hint at an approach: think of Bill Wither’s darkest moments, with a splash of Bobby Womack’s whimsy and just a bit of R. Kelley. Aloe documented the first day, in the Truth & Soul studios in Brooklyn.
