 “The Screaming Eagle of Soul” Charles Bradley has announced summer tour dates, with stops at a number of major festivals including Lollapalooza, FYF Fest and Bumbershoot. Bradley recently wrapped an extensive North American spring tour in support of new album Victim of Love (Dunham/Daptone; it’s reviewed here at BLURT).  Bradley has also just released a new track from Victim of Love. In “You Put The Flame on It,” he sings “My life is gold – you put the flame on it,” backed by a horn chart that sounds like it was lifted from a lost Four Tops single.

Hear the track here:
