“There’s a lot I could say. But I hope you can hear it all in the music.”
Leslie Odom Jr reveals details of his upcoming fifth studio album When a Crooner Dies which arrives November 17th. The ten track set will feature Leslie’s freshly dropped songs Show Me and Holding On To Us and will serve as the Tony award winner’s first non-holiday LP since 2019’s Mr.
