"Bread" Covered by Barrence Whitfield / USA TODAY - ARTE (Association Relative a la Television Europeenne) asks Ayo to cover Bobby Hebb's SUNNY for Summer of Soul

Song debut: Barrence Whitfield's                  'The Corner Man'

R&B screamer Barrence Whitfield goes the distance with a track from "Dig Thy Savage Soul."

The Corner Man, premiering at USA TODAY, begins with blistering garage-rock guitar chords, before Whitfield comes in like a boxer intent on pummeling his opponent. The album also contains a handful of vintage covers, like Nashville R&B singer Bobby Hebb's Bread, the B-side of his 1966 smash Sunny; deep-soul singer Lee Moses' I'm Sad About It; and bluesman Harmonica Fats' My Baby Didn't Come Home Last Night.

"We just got back in the studio, and these original songs started coming," says Whitfield, who still lives in the Boston area. "We wanted to take another step up from the Savage Tracks record. I felt, coming out of that record sessions, that we should try to get an American deal, 'cause we were doing all this other stuff."

The group currently has plans for a fall U.S. tour followed by several dates in Europe
