The stars have aligned and the universe has blessed us with another single from Josef Leimberg’s debut album, Astral Progressions. This latest offering, entitled “Between Us 2,” takes us on a cosmically sonic ride seemingly too perfect for this world. Brilliant horns, ethereal strings and penetrating percussion fuel the journey, while the groovy bass line absorbs the shock of it all. Add the unmistakable touch of the soulful funkstar himself, Bilal, and you get a track that is just as euphoric as the love he sings about. With such luscious lyrics as, “Take a little trip down candy lane / Your cinnamon tastes like chocolate rain,” we dare you not to blush a bit while enjoying this beautiful trip.
"Between Us 2" is the type of brilliant artistry we've come to expect from the multi-talented jazz musician we’ve known previously as half of LoveDragon alongside Terrace Martin. While most know of Josef Leimberg's work on Kendrick Lamar’s To Pimp A Butterfly, he’s also worked his musical genius with the likes of Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre, Erykah Badu and Funkadelic. Both his first single "Interstellar Universe," featuring saxophone slayer Kamasi Washington, and this latest release give those still reeling from the mastery of To Pimp A Butterfly an intense and unpredictable glimpse of what Leimberg is capable of when creating a project all his own and provide a gravitational pull into his captivating world.
