If you hadn’t already heard, Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds will be releasing his 10th studio album, Return of the Tender Lover, this year and he has finally announced the album will hit stores and streaming services on December 4, via Def Jam Recordings.
Return of the Tender Lover is filled with eight beautiful original tracks of unapologetic R&B by the prolific singer/songwriter/producer. Babyface plays on every track on the album including, although not limited to, his amazing and widely-praised guitar work, with the intent to bring feel-good grooves back to music.
The title commemorates and pays homage to his breakthrough 1989 album, the triple-platinum Tender Lover. His second studio LP, it spun off a quartet of career-defining solo R&B/pop cross¬over hits, “It’s No Crime” (#1), “Tender Love” (#1), “Whip Appeal” (#2), and “My Kinda Girl” (#3).
The album’s first single “We’ve Got Love,” transcends romance to bring a global message of love and connectedness that we all have in our hearts.
In promotion of the album Babyface is set to make some high profile television appearances and performances on ABC’s ‘Good Mooring America’ (12/8) and ‘The View’ (12/9).
