Leon Bridges has been hard at work on his forthcoming third album for the past couple of years. Bridges released singles like “All About You” with Lucky Daye and “Sweeter” in the months and years leading up to his 2018 album, Good Thing. Now, “Motorbike,” a new song by the Fort Worth-bred artist, is available. In the breezy tune, he fantasizes about riding in the wind with his love interest seated behind him, arms encircling the singer. The singer’s warm video for the single, directed by Anderson. Paak, exemplifies this exact urge.
Bridges made an official announcement about his third album less than two days ago, and the new single arrives less than two days later. In an Instagram post, he announced that the project would be called Gold-Diggers Sound, after the recording studio where the album was recorded.
“I created this world with @rickyreed and @natemercereau at Gold Diggers Studio in East Hollywood over the course of two very long years,” Bridges wrote under the post. “With immense joy, greater purpose, and sometimes doubt, I labored over these eleven songs, but the record truly came together when I immersed myself in everything @golddiggersla making it my home, my escape, and the center of my creative world.”
He added, “The record features some remarkably talented friends, longtime collaborators and I believe it’s my most personal album yet.”
