Gold-Diggers Sound, which Leon spent over two years conceptualizing, writing and recording, features Robert Glasper, Terrace Martin and Ink. The album has all-new tracks, as well as “Sweeter,” which Leon released last year after the murder of George Floyd and ultimately performed at the Democratic National Convention.
Gold-Diggers Sound is an R&B album birthed from extended late nights at the Los Angeles speakeasy and studio of the same name. The album celebrates Leon’s immersive experience of creating music in the same East Hollywood room where he lived, worked and drank over the course of two years. What began as nightly all-night jam sessions where Leonard his fellow musicians could just vibe and let loose away from crowds, cameras and structured studio schedules, quickly began to form into what he realized was an album. The soulful collaboration between Leon as an artist and the space itself was so encompassing that he chose to name the album after the soon-to-be-legendary complex.
