‘You’re’ Gonna Enjoy This New Sleepy Brown Track

I can finally call off my search for Sleepy Brown. After dropping Mr. Brown five years ago and guest appearances on Outkast's "Morris Brown" and the scrapped Big Boi track "Looking 4 Ya," it seemed that Sleepy simply vanished into thin air. Imagine my great surprise when this new track by Mr. Brown entitled "You're My Lady" surfaced over the weekend. Truly, it's a perfectly laid-back groove for that period where spring slowly fades into the heat of summer. To me, his voice has always been a little bit Curtis Mayfield and a little bit Al Green, and this song is a perfect example of their influences. Brown's feathery falsetto is still in tact as it dances over the slow, organ-laced cut. By the time the electric guitar and the woman speaking what I think might be French appeared, I already knew I'd be hitting the play button again. The track is lifted from Sex, Drugs & Soul, his forthcoming record being issued on his new label 13 Black Records. Go ahead a grab a cool beverage and the one you love while you take a listen below, and fall in love with Sleepy all over again.
