Funk and soul legends Earth, Wind & Fire return this year with their mammoth 21st LP, Now, Then & Forever. The latest offering form the record is “Sign On,” an upbeat number written by vocalist Philip Bailey‘s son Philip Doran Bailey.
“Sign On” contains all the elements of the classic Earth, Wind & Fire sound; a grooving bassline, energetic horns and some quality falsetto vocals complete with tight harmonies provided by the band. The track manages to keep the feel of the group’s sound whilst bringing their aesthetic up to date with the slick production and synchronised arrangement. Closing on an acapella break, Earth, Wind & Fire showcase their timeless ability to make appealing music.
Check out the track below and watch out for the release of Now, Then & Forever on September 10.
