Upcoming Soul Music Releases

Summer is typically a big season for new albums, but this year is even hotter than usual, with dozens of highly anticipated releases from the stars of soul music. Here is our quick rundown

Classic Soul- Classic soulheads will be feasting on new releases from stars they haven’t heard from in awhile. We're anxiously awaiting the new one from Peabo Bryson, who will be releasing a new Jam & Lewis-produced disc in August. Even more surprising are upcoming releases from two dance acts who’ve been gone from the studio for decades: Nile Rodgers and Chic will get us moving in early September, while Change takes a sophisticated soul turn on its first disc in 33 years. Also look for the return of longtime friends Chris Jasper, Glenn Jones, Boz Scaggs, Candi Staton, Macy Gray, Tamia, Marsha Ambrosius and Randy Muller.

The Jazzier Side – Lots of releases coming from artists who light up both the soul and jazz worlds. Dave Koz and his talented friends start things off with Summer Horns II, with Stanley Clarke right behind them with his enticing new one, The Message. Also look for fresh sounds from Bluey’s Citrus Sun, Jeff Lorber, James Saxsmo Gates, Bill McGee and Norman Brown.

Indie Soul Stars – The indie soul movement continues to shine this Summer with new releases coming from Water Seed, James Day, Ty Causey, SuCh, Cleveland P. Jones, Raul Midon, Algebra Blessett, Darian Dean and Judith Hill. Anthony David also returns with a long-awaited Bill Withers tribute album.

On The Rise Some new artists who are making waves will debut this summer. Jade Novah has a huge internet following for her stylish cover songs, but she’ll be going original with her debut album in July. And the The Royal Krunk Jazz Orkestra may have the summer's sleeper hit, teaming with Dionne Farris for a concept album of creative interpretations. Also look for new ones from rising stars The Internet, Show Tyme, The Suffers, Tiffany Bynoe and Judith Hill.

These are just a few of the many exciting releases coming. Check out our full list below!
