Our Song of the Week is a modern-day blues original by the incomparable Adia Victoria.

Building on a deep, intense bass and drum groove, complemented by horns and keys, Adia Victoria cuts through the fuzz with a gripping vocal performance of “Different Kind of Love,” our Song of the Week.

Between the world and me Tell me, what will it be? Who do you love? Tell me, who do you love? -Adia Victoria's "Different Kind of Love"

“Different Kind of Love” appears on Victoria’s 2019 release Silences, which was produced by Aaron Dessner of The National.
