Steve Goddard blogged about the [lastfm]Temptations[/lastfm] earlier this month. They’re coming to the Wild Horse Pass Saloon on 4/23. Now, I’ve got more Temps news, as they are releasing a new album!
“Still Here” hits shelves on May 4th, and is aptly named. The group celebrates its 50th ANNIVERSARY next year! Otis Williams not only handles the vocals on this new disc, but he’s also the executive producer. I think the heart and soul of Motown will shine through on this one.
It’s billed to combine classic and contemporary influences, and will include a new version of one of my favorites, “Ball of Confusion.” They even update “My Girl” with “Shawty Is My Girl Oo Yeah.” (I hope the CD is not TOO ebonicized. Motown had a language of its own, and it was just fine! “Soul Music” will pay homage to just that – the sounds from back in the day.
Should be fun to hear! I bet they will perform some of these songs at their show in April. Want tickets? CLICK HERE.
