For six decades, Atlantic Records has been home to the most innovative, compelling, and enduring artists in soul and R&B. Now, Atlantic welcomes a new addition to its storied roster - Musiq Soulchild. The multi-platinum, Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter will release his eagerly anticipated label debut, "LUVANMUSIQ," on March 13th.
Musiq's first new album in over three years, "LUVANMUSIQ" sees the Philadelphia-raised artist continuing to develop his own unique sound, a distinctly modern melding of 70s soul, classic funk grooves, and hip-hop swagger. The album's first single, "Buddy," has already exploded at radio outlets nationwide, with the companion video slated to premiere in mid-February.
Musiq Soulchild is partnering with Courvoisier to launch his new album as part of the House of Courvoisier (HOC) Music Room Tour. Kicking off in Chicago on March 8th, Musiq Soulchild will play ten cities across the country, performing live at a series of intimate HOC concerts.
Commenting on his signing to Atlantic, Musiq said: "I'm excited to be an Atlantic recording artist for the simple fact that it's a label of great tradition and legacy, which has been responsible for signing some of the greatest artists of all time - from Ray Charles, Led Zeppelin, and John Coltrane to Gerald Levert, T.I., and James Blunt. Just to be added to this great list of artists is enough in itself. I look forward to working with the Atlantic team to continue the legacy."
"I am thrilled to welcome Musiq into the Warner Music Group and Atlantic family," said Warner Music Group Executive Vice President Kevin Liles. "I had the pleasure of working with Musiq during my career at Island Def Jam Music Group, and he is without a doubt one of the most creative, inspirational, humble, and important soul singers of his generation. 'LUVANMUSIQ' is a brilliant combination of honesty, emotion, and soul like only Musiq could deliver."
