Michael Blume has announced the release of a new 6-song EP entitled When I Get It Right out July 29th.
Teeming with honeyed vocals, soulful scatting and thoughtful, socially conscious lyrics, When I Get It Right showcases his trademark mix of R&B, neo-soul, hip-hop, jazz, and electronica, with avant-garde twists. In celebration of the new music, a select run of EP release shows are planned beginning at Bowery Ballroom in New York City on July 26th, where he will be backed by a dynamic 11-piece band. Blume will make additional stops in major cities in the northeast, including: Philadelphia, DC, and Boston. Full routing below. For ticket info, please visit: http://www.mblumemusic.com.

EP tracks “Manufactured Love” and “Colors” have already garnered major acclaim from the likes of Pigeons & Planes, Earmilk, Hilly Dilly and OkayPlayer. From the rousing hip-hop inspired verses in “Relationships,” to the velvety crooning of “High Frequency,” to the very personal “How High” which reflects on Blume’s experience growing up as a gay man, and the self-aware, upbeat “The Same,” When I Get It Right captures intense emotion while still radiating the same undeniable energy seen in his live performance. Selling out multiple shows in New York City, Blume is on his way to a massive career.
