After 7 slows it down beautifully on "No Place Like You"

(June 16, 2021) It’s been four years since After 7 made a triumphant return with Timeless, an excellent album that reconnected them with their adult soul audience and won for them two SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Awards.

Since then the group has experienced the heartache of the passing of former member MelvIn Edmonds, but founding members Kevon Edmonds and Keith Mitchell have brought in singer Danny “Skyhigh” McClain and now are readying their much anticipated album, Unfinished Business. Kevon Edmonds says about the new album “To be honest, four years had already passed since we had a new project in the marketplace and with the advent of the pandemic, it felt like it was perfect time to dig in and get busy creatively. Unfinished Business simply speaks to the fact we felt that there was still more in us musically to explore and share with our fans that have known us and even the ones that don’t."

A couple of months ago, the trio previewed the new album with the modern grinder,  “Bittersweet.” And we think the follow up single will appeal even more to their longtime fans. “No Place Like You” is a heartfelt love song from a man who has traveled the world, only to realize what he really wants is the person who is waiting for him at home: “They say ain’t no place like home, but really there’s no place like you.”

The song, penned by a whopping nine songwriters, is a beautiful re-entry that highlights After 7’s always-sterling harmonies, and Kevon Edmonds’ crystalline first tenor lead. We think you’re absolutely gonna dig this one.

Check out “No Place Like You” and welcome After 7 back to SoulTracks.
