John Legend & The Roots – Our Generation

The Pioneer Sessions project from Levis continues with this latest installment from John Legend and The Roots. The musical legends recorded their own version of  Ernie Hines’ classic hit “Our Generation”.

John Legend and The Roots’s modern interpretation of “Our Generation” retains the all of the authenticity of the original track: It gets funky from the outset, with big fat brass and an ice cold keyboard vamp, inspirational backing singers and a particularly gritty vocal by Legend who reiterates Hines’s 40-year-old message about making the future better by “getting rid of all the hate.
