New Music: John Legend ‘Roll Jordan Roll’


Stacy-Ann Ellis / October 24, 2013

John Legend peels back from the futuristic sound of his latest album to channel an older energy for “Roll Jordan Roll,” a song from the 12 Years a Slave movie soundtrack. The G.O.O.D. Music artist is leading the official soundtrack to the Steve McQueen-directed historical dramatic film. Legend’s hearty, gospel infused vocals will be joined on the soundtrack by Hans Zimmer, Gary Clark Jr., Alicia Keys, Alabama Shakes, Cody Chestnutt and more. The soundtrack will be available in stores Nov. 11.
