[music] Charles Bradley - The World (Is Going Up In Flames)

"One might think soul songs as stirring as The World (Is Going Up In Flames) stopped being made after Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Goin’ On.” Au contraire. In Charles Bradley’s hardened hands, The World — a “who’s gonna take the weight” search for a savior for this dangerous planet — is a tempestuous rallying cry for responsibility and understanding. Backed by The Menahan Street Band and released on Dunham Records (an affiliate of Daptone, the home of Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and The Budos Band), Bradley’s passionate testimonial gets soul aficionados sighing "They don't make 'em like that anymore" in reverie. The World (Is Going Up In Flames) appears on Charles Bradley's new album, No Time For Dreaming." -- iTunes Store
