Sweet Baby


”Sweet Baby,” the first single from ”The Id,” Gray’s upcoming new album, won’t put any Rod Stewart comparisons to rest; its warm, early ’70s vibe would feel right at home on a Faces record. And thanks to guests Erykah Badu, John Frusciante, and Billy Preston, the track boasts some top notch retro details (as well as pretty but heavy handed strings). Unfortunately, the repetitive and unmemorable melody won’t make you say ”Ooh La La.”
