Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter and record producer Raphael Saadiq has announced the release of his fifth studio album Stone Rollin' on March 22, 2011 on Columbia Records. Known for defying the confines of working within one genre, this standard bearer for "old school" R&B returns with a new release that celebrates the classic sounds of 60's and 70's soul with a futuristic twist. Raphael is set to debut the video for the track "Radio" today at www.rollingstone.com. The song will be available on iTunes starting next Tuesday, January 11th.
Featuring ten new tracks, Stone Rollin' is the follow up to Saadiq's 2008 solo album The Way I See It, which boasted four Billboard R&B chart singles and was nominated for three GRAMMY Awards including Best R&B Album. The album was also selected by iTunes as their 'Album of the Year' in 2008. With the release of The Way I See It, Raphael Saadiq truly made his mark as a touring artist, striking a universal chord with audiences around the world through multiple performances at festival dates throughout Europe and the States -- including Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Lollapalooza, SXSW and Voodoo Experience-- as well as a recent opening slot on the Dave Matthews Band's amphitheater tour. Now with his new collection Stone Rollin', Saadiq nods to his heroes like Chuck Berry, Stevie Wonder, Little Walter and Sly Stone, while merging his own contemporary twist, one born out of a combination of his recent touring experiences, as well as inspiration derived from indie acts that hold regular rotation in his ipod. The end result is a collection that showcases Saadiq's gifted musicality and the stellar production skills that have become the artist's signature.
Amazing talent. This show was a 10.
Raphael a musical genius.
Feel good music the entire audience
Was moving with his harmonies.
He shape shifted from all different kinds of
Music from Sinatra to pop to reggae.
This performer was one of the best stage performers i have ever seen live.
It was a euphoric experience.
I have seen 100s of shows of all kinds of music.
I highly suggest seeing him perform your yourself.
