    (January 14, 2022) As we anxiously await the upcoming 60th Anniversary album coming from the legendary act, The Temptations, the group continues to give us sneak peeks into their Temptations 60 project, which is due on January 28.

    Today, the Temptin' Tempts issued a brand new song written by group members Otis Williams and Terry Weeks along with Victor Carstarphen. "Calling Out Your Name" is a smooth ballad that builds into something more dramatic by the end. Weeks handles the lead vocals on the number, alternating vocals with Mario Corbino.

    "Calling" recalls the group's late 90s work (around the time of their #1 hit "Stay"), and has a cool adult soul vibe that should connect with their fans. It is third preview of the upcoming album, and all have been absolutely solid. We can't wait to hear the rest.

    Check out "Calling Out Your Name" below, and tell us what you think.
