August Greene / Karriem Riggins, Robert Glasper and Common join forces with Brandy

When I spoke to Karriem Riggins a few months ago about new stuff he was working on, I was glad to hear there was more music on the way with his friend Common. Throw Robert Glasper in the mix as a continuation of their work together on Black America Again and you have brand new outfit August Greene.

Enjoy the first new music from them, a collab with Brandy: an uplifting and timely cover of the classic Optimistic from Sounds Of Blackness, below. What a cover image that is, too.

Hit up their Facebook here.

Check my chat with Karriem over at Bonafide.
