Leon Bridges has released a new single, “Why Don’t You Touch Me,” off his forthcoming LP Gold-Diggers Sound.
The singer shared the mournful track with the first half of a two-part music video directed by Jackson Tisi. The second half will premiere June 24th. The video showcases an intertwining narrative of three people working through a souring relationship, set in a surrealist version of Gold Diggers, the real-life hotel/recording studio that inspired Bridges’ album.
Gold-Diggers Sound, out July 23rd, is Bridges’ third album, following 2018’s Good Things. It includes the single “Sweeter” with Terrace Martin, which Bridges released last year following the murder of George Floyd, as well as recent single “Motorbike.”
