World Premiere: Long Lost Maurice White music pulled from the vault

(July 10, 2019) There aren’t many artists of the past half century who are as revered as Maurice White. As the visionary leader of Earth Wind & Fire, he changed the landscape of music, in sound and in message. And his great work leading EWF before his untimely death in 2016 made him a music legend who transcended categorization.

In addition to his work with EWF, Maurice White also recorded some solo work over the years. And for nearly thirty years, he frequently collaborated with legendary songwriter and producer Preston Glass, with the partnership resulting in more than 40 songs, many of which were never released.

Preston and Soul Music Records empresario David Nathan have collected twelve of these “lost” songs and are issuing them in the new collection, Manifestation, which will be released on July 16. And we’re extremely proud to provide SoulTrackers with a sneak peek of one of those never released songs. “I Couldn’t Be Me Without You” is a bouncy number, accentuated by electronic keyboards and fronted by that familiar Maurice White voice.

Check out the World Premiere of “I Couldn’t Be Me Without You” below, and get ready for Manifestation.
