earworm of the day: change is gonna come

pretty lights is known to some as derek vincent smith. his music jumps back and forth between genres but is rooted in instrumental hip hop. i've been hearing a bit of dubstep influence creeping in to his stuff in the last year or so and it will be interesting to see if he develops it further or leaves it at just an influence.
change is gonna come is the first track off his 2008 double album filling up the city skies. it starts out with a sam cooke sample where it gets it's name from. it took a while to grow on me because pretty lights version is a lot more up beat than i was expecting but it's hard not to love sam's voice as he reassures us that no matter what, things will get better if we work for it.
