EDITORS’ NOTES

Kentucky singer Jordan Smith’s talents were already pretty remarkable when he won season nine of The Voice. Arriving three years and a marriage later, his third album highlights even more emotional depth and range. The vocal showcase “Please” echoes Prince’s “Purple Rain,” while the John Legend-penned “End in Love” is all good-vibes, R&B-inspired pop that’s perfect for a summer drive. But it’s still those heart-wrenching ballads that are his calling card: The poignant closer, “Sleeve,” is all about how we define home.
