[REDEMPTION SONGS] “I used to smoke crack back in the day.” That blunt admission is how Cody Chesnutt begins “Everybody’s Brother,” a song from 2012’s Landing on a Hundred, his first full-length album in a decade. You’d be forgiven for thinking he’s talking about himself, especially after listening to the record. Much of it is autobiographical, and plays like a man confessing to—and atoning for—past sins. But on that particular tune, written from the perspective of an addict and swindler turned Sunday-school teacher, the Atlanta-born soul singer drew from the struggles of those around him to make a universal statement about redemption. The way he talks about his time away from the music industry, though, you’d think he spent the past 10 years in detox. Landing on a Hundred documents Chesnutt’s period of spiritual cleansing—celebrating the birth of his son and chastising his younger self for the misogyny that pocked his previous album, the stylistically manic Headphone Masterpiece—via a bright, classic soul sound.
