Longtime Faves – Fans looking for new music from some old school favorites will find something to cheer about, with the release of the new solo album by Earth Wind & Fire’s Philip Bailey coming out on June 21. Angie Stone follows in July with her Full Circle project, and Lionel Richie supplements his big summer tour with Hello From Las Vegas. The late, great Leon Ware will also be represented with his final release, Rainbow Deux, and Raphael Saadiq will be back in the game with Jimmy Lee.

Indie Soul Stars  - Many independent soul stars are also putting out full lengthers, beginning with funkmeisters The APX, soul man Raheem DeVaughn, Euro-dance masters Cool Million, and longtime SoulTracks friends ABIAH, Brian Owens and Juewett Bostic all arriving in June. Also be on the lookout for highly anticipated releases by Ola Onabule, Jazzmeia Horn, Matthew Whitaker, and Elle Varner coming a bit later.
