Leon Bridges Shares “Coming Home” Music Video


With SXSW less than two weeks away, all eyes are on Leon Bridges and his throwback take on soul music. Having risen to prominence at the end of 2014 thanks to a few strong blog articles, the Dallas native has been sharing new songs every few weeks, and now he’s shared his very first music video.

“Coming Home” is the song that introduced the world to Leon Bridges. It’s a slow and romantic ode to the longing we feel to be near loved ones while we are on the road. Bridges’ vocals sound as if they were lifted from the studio masters of some long lost Motown recording session, only with a slight edge that makes it feel decidedly modern, and the music is nothing short of enthralling. The video is little more than well edited performance footage, but it works to pull you in all the same. Check it out:

We are working to interview Leon Bridges while at SXSW, but we don’t want to make any promises we may not be able to keep. For now, follow UTG on Twitter for updates on Bridges’ plans for the future, as well as all your other entertainment news needs.
