Grammy and Tony Award-winning vocalist, songwriter, author and actor Leslie Odom, Jr. unveils his latest single, “Under Pressure” via Vibe. Click HERE to listen. This is the debut track off of his anxiously awaited first album of all-original material, Mr, which is set to arrive on November 8. The album will be available for pre-order HERE.
Over the past two years, Leslie quietly crafted what would become this new album. His vision crystallized during a writing camp he personally assembled at George Lucas’s world-famous Skywalker Ranch in December 2018, featuring accomplished songwriters from a variety of musical genres. Threading together elements of soul, R&B, jazz, and pop, he now emerges with a singular style as powerful and passionate as it is personal.
“’Under Pressure’ was one of the last songs we wrote for the record. It came together after we’d spent some hours getting to know one another and we were comfortable with each other. Writing the music started in such a personal way and I hope everyone likes it. I really do. But if for some reason ‘the world’ didn’t, I think I could rest knowing that it touched the people who’ve known and held me up the longest.” – says Leslie Odom Jr. of the track
