Review: Daley Releases Sophomore Album ‘The Spectrum’

Daley Spectrum

When you envision next level R&B, Daley is the prototype. His sophomore album, The Spectrum is a reflection of soul-baring intensity, saturated with honesty, love and a bit of pain.  The UK singer/songwriter’s tender, yet firm vocals ride a potent mix of soul, funk, pop and electronica. Melodic euphoria unfolds with “Until The Pain Is Gone,” his chart topping single with Jill Scott. Their soothing vocals blend into a mind massage that gives just enough get right.

Self-care is a priority on the piano-led “Selfish,” as he explains that he needs “to be cool to be kind.” While his deep spirituality is felt on “Temple,” and “The Fabric,” a dedication to his friend who passed away. His influences are clear on the bass heavy, Swindle assisted “Sympathy,” confirming him as a Prince protege.

90s R&B oozes from ballads like, “Second To None” as he sings,  “A million a things I have to do, but this distraction’s really all I need … Maybe I’m wrong / Maybe I’m foolish / A lifetime is a long time / So I might be crazy, but I don’t put nothing before you / Without you to hold, this life don’t mean nothing.”

The Essence Fest alum’s charm is infectious on the upbeat “Slow Burn” and “On Fire.” But don’t get lost in the sauce. He will check you, because you’re not “The Only One” who goes through some thangs. The guitar-tinged “True” and the dream-like “Distance” join other standouts, earning this jinx-free effort a spot on your playlist.

The Spectrum is available now on all digital outlets. Stream it below.

Video: Daley feat. Jill Scott – Until The Pain Is Gone

Only one week after releasing his outstanding new single, “Until the Pain is Gone,” British vocalist Daley premieres the music video for the Jill Scott-featured duet.

Shot at the Spectrum Diner in stunning neon lighting, the visuals find Daley contemplating his relationship at the restaurant counter, while another couple deal with the emotions of their own situation.

Scott doesn’t appear in the video unfortunately, but singer/songwriter delivers a spellbinding performance in front of colorful bars of light, and in front of rain covered glass.

“Until the Pain is Gone” is the first single off Daley’s forthcoming sophomore album, The Spectrum, which is due out later this year.

The song hits close to home for Daley, “The song kind of came out of frustration I was feeling in a relationship,” he told Billboard. “The situation was going nowhere because we both weren’t really fully able to admit how we felt about each other and just be honest. And that situation didn’t really work out, but for the purposes of writing this song, I just kind of gave it a happy ending and idealized it a little bit.”

While writing the song, he felt Jill Scott would be the perfect collaborator on the record. “When I was in the studio writing the song, I just had a feeling, and I kept hearing Jill’s voice in the mix when I was writing. It was kind of strange, almost like it was asking for her energy.”

New Music: Daley feat. Jill Scott – Until The Pain Is Gone

More than a year after previewing the song for fans, Daley has finally released the studio version of his collaboration with Jill Scott, “Until The Pain Is Gone.”

The intoxicating duet is the first single from the UK crooner’s upcoming EP, which follows his acclaimed 2014 debut album, Days + Nights. Everything we love about Daley and Jill is experienced throughout this soul-stirring ballad that plays with our heartstrings in all the right ways.

“Try to see this through my eyes / ‘Cause you’re not the only one confused / In this world where love is prone to lose,” sings Daley. While Jilly from Philly responds to his requests to pursue real love, “Can you convince me? / Change my mind / We can leave all those demon days behind / Cause didn’t I mention, I have nothing but good intentions for you.”

The song hits close to home for Daley, “The song kind of came out of frustration I was feeling in a relationship,” he told Billboard. “The situation was going nowhere because we both weren’t really fully able to admit how we felt about each other and just be honest. And that situation didn’t really work out, but for the purposes of writing this song, I just kind of gave it a happy ending and idealized it a little bit.”

Guitar-Sessions

Throughout the years that we’ve been running ThisisRnB, our original acoustic sessions series has been one of the most rewarding and enriching things that we’ve done. From the earliest developments of it and curating our process over the years, we couldn’t be more honored and proud of the content that has been created through these sessions.

While the videos live on our YouTube channel, we’ve always felt like it would be nice to do something with the audio recordings as well.

So, after revisiting the sessions, we’ve gathered and created playlists broken down into two simple styles–piano sessions and guitar sessions. We are currently releasing them online for free streaming as our gift to you!

Thank you all for watching and supporting us over the years. Thank you to all the artists who allowed us to help capture these amazing performances, along with all the publicists, managers, and record label associates who helped facilitate them. Thank you to all the engineers and studios as well, we couldn’t have done this without you.
