March 02, 2015

Throw it back on a Monday with Leon Bridges, the 25 year old rhythm and blues crooner and recent Columbia Records-signee who has steady been drawing comparisons to Sam Cooke. Today he is premiering the sweet and breezy video for his first single "Coming Home" that was born out of his carefully curated Instagram account, which seamlessly hems vintage photos together with black-and-white dispatches from his own recent adventures. "I wanted to express a simple story of faithfulness," Bridges tells FADER. "The video is basically my Instagram come to life—showing vignettes of a real relationship, me being caught up in the busy lane of life, but always longing to be with my loved one." Aww. Watch the video, featuring direction by Chip Tompkins and cinematography by Tanner Teaff, up above.
