Soul Icons The Temptations To Release New Album Temptations 60 in 2022

Legendary soul group The Temptations will release a brand new album of mostly original songs in 2022. ‘Temptations 60’ comes 60 years after the first single for The Temptations ‘Oh Mother of Mine’ in 1961.

Original member Dr Otis Williams said, “Our new album carries with it, our legacy, our love of music and our hope that through our music we can uplift and bring people together. Most of all, we want fans to enjoy it and share it with family and friends around the world. It’s a thank you gift from our hearts to all of our fans, past, present and future.”

The Temptations first hit was ‘The Way You Do The Things You Do’ in 1963.

The best known song by The Temptations is ‘My Girl’ lent its name to the Macauley Culkin movie of 1991.

The Temptations song have been covered by dozens of artists including The Rolling Stones ‘Ain’t Too Proud To Beg’ and Rod Stewart ‘I Know I’m Losing You’.

The ‘Temptations 60’ album will include a remake of the oldest Otis Williams song, ‘Come On’ recorded and released under his pre-Temptations band name The Distants in 1959.

Dr Williams said,

“Delivering our 60th anniversary album is a special moment for me. Being back in the studio this time filled me with so many memories of my journey and reminded me of how long and rewarding a journey it has been. I get emotional every time I think about it, because we poured every ounce of our heart and soul into making this album extra special, and only when we were satisfied that it was in keeping with our unique style, did we put our stamp on it. I can proudly say it showcases brand new songs that reflect the best of what’s vintage, and modern, in our music. A capstone of my career, this album represents generations of unique melodies, lyrics and songs, distinctly our own. Some of the new songs echo our original ballads and love songs, while others capture current, topical vibes of the 21st Century. It also includes new songs that reflect the times we are living in now.

It brings together again several great producers we have worked with in the past, including Smokey Robinson, Narada Michael Walden, Dennis Nelson and Thomas “TC” Campbell. Now, as divine grace would have it, we got another chance to collaborate again.”

‘Temptations 60’ will be released on January 28, 2022.
