Charles Bradley released his third studio album Changes this spring on Daptone Records imprint Dunham Records, and has spent the majority of 2016 on the road in support of the widely praised album. Today, the 67-year old soul singer heads back to his Brooklyn home after an extensive European leg of his tour and, to celebrate, has just released a new video for album track “Good To be Back Home” via Pitchfork.

It also features live footage from Bradley’s shows at The Theatre at Ace Hotel (LA), The Observatory (San Diego), Pappy + Harriet’s (Pioneertown, CA) and Bonnaroo.
