Bilal Releases First Single, “Restart,” from Forthcoming Album Airtight’s Revenge Due September 14th

The first single from Grammy-nominated soul singer Bilal’s forthcoming album, Airtight’s Revenge, is in stores now. The track, “Restart,” is produced by Bilal and Steve McKie (Jill Scott, Estelle) and is one of eleven new tracks on the album, which hits stores on September 14th via Plug Research.

Bilal is also giving away the track on his label’s website at http://www.plugresearch.com/, where fans can enter their email address to receive an immediate download or stream the iTunes single in its entirety, which also includes an instrumental version and a remix by experimental producer Daedelus. Here’s what Daedelus had to say about the process: “a challenge to remix; Bilal is a dynamic performer, a live wire conducting down some serious electricity, so of course I just tried to give it an urgent platform to shine.”
