With each new single Curtis Harding shares from his upcoming sophomore LP, we gain a wider idea of what sort of creative direction the Atlanta soul singer and multi-instrumentalist is headed with the new release. “Need Your Love” is the third cut from to be revealed from Face Your Fear and it finds Harding riding a rousing gospel-funk groove that serves as a springboard for his ecstatic vocals and roof-raising hooks. While Harding’s 2014 debut, Soul Power, maintained a heavy dose of greasy garage rock grit, these latest tracks sound more measured and refined — yet no less stirring. It’s the sound of an artist growing into their sound and approaching their craft with greater confidence and command. Listen below.
Face Your Fear is out October 27 via Anti- Records. Pre-orders are available here.
