The new year is bringing exciting new things to the music world, and one of them is the formation of new super group August Greene. Rapper Common, pianist Robert Glasper and drummer Karriem Riggins have come together to form the group, something that has been in the works since 2016.
The trio has also unveiled their first single, ’Optimistic’ which is a cover of Sounds of Blackness’ 1991 song of the same name. It features some excellent guest vocals from Brandy.
'Optimistic’ is the lead single off August Greene’s self-titled debut album which drops March 9 exclusively via Amazon Music.
