Smokey Robinson, King of Motown, new album released
It’s been almost a decade since Smokey Robinson’s last album, but new music from King of Motown is on the horizon.
Obinson, the man behind hits like My Girl and The Way You Do The Things You Do, announced he will be releasing a nine-track album titled Gasms on April 28.
Gasms features new songs produced and written by Robinson himself.
The former vice president of Motown Records released his last collaborative album nine years ago, Smokey & Friends, which featured musicians such as Sir Elton John, John Legend, Steven Tyler and Mary J Blige.
The first single from the upcoming album, If We Don’t Have Each Other, is available now on streaming services.
Robinson is a music producer, songwriter, record label executive and solo songwriter who has written more than 4,000 songs and been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll and Songwriters Hall of Fame.
The musician has worked with other historic Motown artists such as The Temptations, Mary Wells, Brenda Holloway and Marvin Gaye.
Robinson will soon be honored alongside Motown musician Berry Gordy as the 2023 Person of the Year at the Recording Academy’s annual MusiCares event on February 3 in Los Angeles.
