A day before New Music Friday, we receive a welcomed surprise from the outstandingly talented Earl St. Clair. Last year, the Def Jam signee broke out with smoldering singles like “Man On Fire” and the soulful Bibi Bourelly duet “Perfect.” While early followers of Earl were anticipating his debut album Songs About A Girl I Used To Know later this year, but today (March 2) the singer/songwriter/producer releases his official introductory EP, My Name is Earl.
A throwback to classic soul, funk, and blues the crooner captivates your ears immediately with the opening songs “Pain” and “Three Story Home,” where he sings out about losing his woman, “This house ain’t a home, whenever she gone / These nights can get long, in my three story home / I see I was wrong, I guess I’m not that strong / Now I’m all alone in my three story home.”
In addition to the previously released “Feeling Alive,” the 7-track EP features 6 brand new songs that continue to showcase why Earl is one of the must-see new artists of 2017. In fact, you can watch him perform live tonight on “The Late Late Show with James Corden” in celebration of the EPs release.
Stream My Name is Earl via Spotify below, and pick it up on iTunes now.
