Fresh off making his solo DJBooth debut with the reader-approved Calls, Blue Note songwriter, producer and pianist Robert Glasper returns with another left-of-center cut off his forthcoming LP. The title of new single I Stand Alone is slightly deceptive; though the joint does indeed deal with the feelings of isolation that come with life in the spotlight, it finds the artist flanked by two collaborators who can undoubtedly relate. Windy City rap veteran Common delivers thoughtful verses over the headliner’s jazzy, keyboard-led grooves, and Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump lends his vocals to the record’s chorus. On the back, an unknown interlocutor offers some heady reflections on creativity, spirituality and African culture. For I Stand Alone and many more innovative jams, check out Glasper’s Black Radio 2 LP when it hits record stores and online retailers October 29.
