Soulful sexagenarian R&B singer Charles Bradley has had a hell of a year. After catching the eye of a Daptone agent while doing a James Brown routine at a Bushwick club, the 63-year-old band leader released his debut album, No Time For Dreaming, on Daptone earlier this year to widespread acclaim.
 
Later this month, Bradley will set out on a tour of North America, including a New Year’s Eve show at Music Hall Of Williamsburg with the Budos Band, before heading down under for a run in Australia. Download the mp3 for the stirring R&B rumination “Heartaches And Pain” here, and check out the accompanying video below.
