Two weeks ahead of its official release, you can now listen to Jesse Boykins III‘s new album Love Apparatus in its entirety online.
The New York-based singer has kept his fans well fed with a number of EPs, collaborations and performances around the globe over the last few years following his well-received 2008 LP, The Beauty Created. Love Apparatus is his first full-length solo project to be released since, and offers a matured blend of ambient soul and R&B with welcome touches of electro, paired with thoughtful lyrics and Jesse’s distinctive, atmospheric vocal arrangements.
Machinedrum handles the majority of production on the 14-track independent release, which features the singles “Plain,” “Show Me Who You Are” and “Live In Me,” with a couple of guest appearances from Phonte [of Little Brother/The Foreign Exchange] and Theophilus London.
New Yorkers can also catch Jesse performing his new material and fan favourites live at his Irving Plaza release show on Saturday, May 3rd; tickets available here.
