Bernod Plants Seeds As She Salutes Soul Pioneers

June 2, 2011


Taking a page from her old C+C Music Factory days, Karen Bernod released a teaser for her new album via Facebook on Wednesday. The song, “Soul Pioneer,” calls out names like Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn Lady Day, the “divas back in the day” acknowledging that they “paved the way.” Then she pulls out Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, The Jackson 5, telling them “thank you.” Minnie Ripperton, Jill Scott, India.Arie, DeBarge are the next wave that she thanks, pointing out their “timeless music.” It’s a valentine. A true valentine to her musical influences and peers. After just one listen, I fell in love with it. If you love music, there’s a good chance you will too.

The new project, Planting Seeds, will be out… “soon.” Let’s cross our fingers that soon really means soon. Bernod has been promising us this house music-filled disc for a minute now and daddy’s getting anxious!
