Eric Bellinger has released an acoustic collection of songs from his first proper album New Light. The four-track EP features stripped-down takes of fan-favorites such as “Tired of Waiting” and “Euphoric.”
Prior to releasing this special EP, Bellinger shared stripped-down performances of each track, including “What About Us.”
New Light is nominated for Best Progressive R&B Album at the 64th Grammy Awards.
“I think the album sounds exactly how I want it to sound. Now, I can say I have an R&B album,” Bellinger told Rated R&B in a fall interview.
“I know a lot of the music that I’ve released in the past has been a lot more uptempo, from club songs [and] real turn up because I’m from the West Coast. Now I think people can expect a much wiser and mature Eric Bellinger for the albums to come.”
Bellinger recently appeared on a Snoop Dogg-led track (“New Oldie”) featuring Usher.
He also has been cast in CW’s Black Pack variety specials, which is executive produced by Taye Diggs, who also co-stars along with Ne-Yo.
