Leon Bridges is going to be something special. The native Texan crooner has been spotlighted on Day & A Dream at least twice, and in so doing, he’s made his debut LP, Coming Home, one of the more anticipated R&B projects going into the summer. Today, Bridges took to VEVO to reveal the newest single from Coming Home, entitled “Smooth Sailing.”

“Smooth,” indeed, seems the most appropriate way to describe the three-minute number, with its funky drums, tapping drums, and trumpet showing off in the background. But though the country-funk-soul instrumental is infectious, it’s Bridges’ crooning that stands out more than anything. Appealing to the “pretty lady” who’s caught his eye and stole his heart, Bridges appeals to the best of her, insisting on the song’s bridge “I won’t weigh you down.” The only thing missing from “Smooth Sailing,” is a partner to two-step and sing along with.

Leon Bridges’ much-awaited debut album Coming Home – on which “Smooth Sailing” appears – releases on June 23rd. However, you can pre-order the LP now on iTunes.
