On Stay High, Brittany Howard is able to create a soulful, laid-back effort that draws on 1970s soul and funk. Including Terry Crews is a major get, but Howard’s technical ability will ultimately be what wins fans over. The sheer range that is achieved by these vox is testament to Howard’s ability. The percussion and driving beat that plays behind Howard’s voice adds a bit of momentum to Stay High. Timeless in its execution, Stay High is one of those rare songs that will stick around with one long after the effort ceases to play. The last 45 seconds are a stellar conclusion to one of the more memorable songs released this year.
