Cory Henry has released a self-produced solo album this week, titled Something to Say. This marks Henry’s first-ever self-produced album.
The 11-song, 43-minute album perfectly encapsulates Henry’s extensive musical prowess and multi-instrumental mastery that fans have come to love and appreciate. Furthermore, Something to Say serves as Henry’s artistic reflection of the current social and emotional climate we find ourselves in today. With features from The Funk Apostles on four separate tracks, the album combines a wide array of sounds and provides something for any music fan to enjoy.
A song like “No Guns”, for example, sees Henry paint a picture of unity and hopes for a society rooted in understanding rather than petty differences. On “Black Man”, Henry talks directly to those who may not understand or appreciate the cultural differences between Black and White America. He touches upon topics like the War on Drugs and unfair representations of Black Americans with lines like “I’m a Black man/Don’t be scared”, “Blue is the only color safe if you ain’t white,” In the land of the free/But I’ve been in chains since slavery”, and “After all these years/You still afraid of me.”
All in all, the album combines conscious lyricism with masterful musicianship and infectious grooves. Check it out below and click here for more streaming options.
