First Listen: Earth, Wind & Fire gives you "My Promise"

(June 24, 2013) What more can be said about Earth Wind & Fire? They're one of the most important bands of all-time, and they have created a legacy of great music that is tough to match.

We're getting ready for their next album, Now, Then & Forever, slated for a September 10 release, but in the meantime the group has released a single from the album, the very EWF-sounding "My Promise." It sounds like 1980 again -- a great Summer jam, filled with horns and a funky beat.

Take a listen and tell us what you think!

“The Now, Then & Forever album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire”, said co-founder Philip Bailey.  “The spirit of the band has always been about uplifting the consciousness of humanity.  There's a hope that this Earth, Wind & Fire music will go on forever.”

 

“The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally,” said EWF’s co-founder Verdine White.  “Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible.  We dedicate this album, Now, Then & Forever, to all the fans."
