Cody Chesnutt: Come Back Like Spring
We haven’t heard much from Cody Chesnutt since his amazing 2002 debut The Headphone Masterpiece, so it is great to hear that he is starting to craft some new work. “Come Back Like Spring” is a breezy, soulful, less than two minute jam about the springtime. The production is noticeably more professional sounding than Chesnutt’s bedroom recorded stuff – so I am guessing that sometime soon we will be able to hear an actual studio recorded LP. If this song is any indicator, the higher recording quality does nothing to diminish Chesnutt’s quiet balladry (though hopefully he has a few bangers planned as well). Shout out to Jon Jon over at Sound Verite’ for the heads up!
