New R&B/Soul: Eric Benet's Label, Jordan House, to Release Self-Titled October Album
The soon to be released self-titled album from soul singer Eric Benet will be available this October and the release marks his second album put out on his own record label imprint, Jordan House.
What's to be expected from Benet's second Jordan House-release? That would be a continuation of soul music, brought by brilliant vocals just as he did with the label's first release -- his album The One.
According to Singersroom, it was with this album that helped Benet set the tone for the newly established record label, its foundation and the other artists that would soon sign with the imprint.
The One was really the foundation of Jordan House," explained Benet to Singersroom. "Jordan House was only a record label that I released my album on, but I had such great success with my record that I loved the idea of reaching out to some artists, who I felt like their particular creative journey was where I was trying to go with Jordan House."
Those other artists included Calvin Richardson and Goapele.
Both singers are soulful and unique, with their own unique style, just the kind of thing that Benet sought after and spoke of during the 2014 interview.
After releasing and developing albums for both like Richardson's 2014 I Am Calvin and Goapele's fifth studio album, Strong As Glass, it was time for him to work on his own music again.
As reported by This Is RnB, fans can expect that new music to arrive on Oct. 7.
The 13-track album features duets with artists like Tamia, whom Benet worked with in the past on the Grammy-nominated single, "Spend My Life With You." Their latest single, "Sunshine(Remix)" will be featured as a bonus track on the forthcoming, Eric Benet.
Other features include MC Lyte, Arturo Sandoval, and a special lullaby for his youngest daughter, Amoura Luna, with wife Manuela Testolini that he affectionately titled, "Never Be the Same (Luna's Lullaby)."
The Milwaukee native is also readying for the fall tour dates of the Anthony Hamilton What I'm Feelin' Tour. He and Lalah Hathaway will join Hamilton beginning Oct. 6, one day before his album release, for a 16-date-tour throughout the month of October.
