Good Thing is born from the song “Bad Bad News”, which contains the line “They say that I was born to lose, but I made a good good thing, out of bad bad news”. By now Leon’s backstory is well known; he went from working as a dishwasher and struggling through the open mic scene in his native Fort Worth, Texas to two-time Grammy nominated artist performing at the White House for President Obama, attending the Met Gala and appearing on Saturday Night Live in a two year span. Now a more experienced artist, this album showcases a man’s continued rise from little opportunity to embracing the world stage. If Coming Home was Leon Bridges in black and white, then Good Thing is Leon Bridges in technicolour.
