Brian McKnight Releasing New Album in 2013
|Nov 09 2012|
Brian McKnight is readying a new album, tentatively titled Words for release in early 2013. He tells Billboard, "I hadn't really planned on making another one." But his record company E1 who released his 2011 album Just Me, called to see if he wanted to release another project. Brian says he worked on nearly 40 songs for the set and that stylistically there's no real theme for the album. He also collaborated with singer-songwriter Colbie Caillat, who co-wrote the planned title track with him. McKnight hopes to release the album's first single this month but says he's "torn" about which track to go with. He plans to give E1 three choices and let the label decide. Brian's next performance will be with his full band in Detroit, MI on November 23.
