Video - Seinabo Sey: Hard Times

I mentioned Swedish/Gambian singer Seinabo Sey's stunning single Hard Times in last week's "songs you may have missed" splurge.

But in case you missed the songs you may have missed, here is one of the songs you may have missed. Again.

And this time it has a video.

Seinabo Sey - Hard Times

According to the press release, Hard Times "combines the ultra-modern feel of downtempo R&B and glacial Swedish electronica with the melodrama of Lauryn Hill and classic cult American blues singer Vera Hall."

Vera Hall, of course, is the woman who sang Trouble So Hard in 1937. The anti-slavery protest song was later sampled by Moby on Natural Blues in 2000. You can certainly hear the inspiration.
