Dallas-based Soul/R&B group Bastards of Soul have shared their new single “You Let Me Down Again.” The song is the latest to release off their upcoming third (and final) album Give it Right Back, the last collection of songs recorded with their late singer/bandleader Chadwick Murray before his untimely passing in 2021.
The album is set to release on November 17th, 2023 through Skylark Soul Co. The song is a take on “uncertain love” written by keys player Chad Stockslager, and is also accompanied by an official video featuring behind-the-scenes footage of the studio sessions, giving a glimpse into Murray’s powerful and dynamic presence.
This footage comes from Paul Levatino’s upcoming documentary Bastards of Soul, which showcases the bands final days together before Murray’s passing.
“You Let Me Down Again” follows the release of the album’s lead single “This Love,” the last song Chadwick ever wrote, a beautiful ballad dedicated to his wife Hannah. Sadly Chadwick didn’t have the chance to record vocals before his passing, so as a tribute, and with Hannah’s blessing, the band’s close friend and fellow Dallas musician Keite Young is featured on the track in his honor.
