I could listen to this song all day.  It comes from Robert Glasper’s album Mood, and it really does set a mood.  The multitracked moans, hums, and buzzes of Bilal give the melody an eerie sound, as if his voice is being carried on an otherworldly wind.  You can really hear the influence of Radiohead’s “Everything in Its Right Place”, which Robert recorded in fuller form for his In My Element album.
