John Legend & The Roots: "Shine" and "Hard Times"


With Wake Up!'s release exactly two weeks away, more material from John Legend & The Roots hit the web today. First up is their rendition of Baby Huey & The Babysitters "Hard Times" which we got an in-studio performance video of back in June. "Hard Times" is one of the album cuts that features a verse from Black Thought, so you know you want to check that. Also leaking today is the only original tune on the album, "Shine." You might remember this song was initially recorded for Davis Guggenheim's documentary, Waiting For Superman. The track is probably my favorite song on the album. Hear them both below. Tomorrow morning we'll be posting the official Wake Up! EPK and it's looking sharp, so check back for that. Wake Up! drops September 21st. Via OKP
