#NewSoulAlbum: Billy Valentine - Billy Valentine & The Universal Truth

On Billy Valentine & The Universal Truth, Valentine reinterprets iconic protest songs, giving us his own spirited expressions of the boundless outrage, struggle, despair, and resilience contained therein. Backed by a veritable who’s who of modern jazz — Theo Croker, Pino Pallodino, Jeff Parker, Immanuel Wilkins and so many more (full credits below) — Valentine’s performances find new contours in these testifying renditions of message songs originally recorded and written by Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, Eddie Kendricks, War, Prince — and of course, Flying Dutchman stalwarts Leon Thomas and Gil-Scott Heron.

This new Billy Valentine new project entitled "Billy Valentine & The Universal Truth" is now available on bandcamp and dsps. Check out the 8 track, over 40 minute Album now below
