It has been sometime since we’ve heard from the woman who brought us soul stirring songs on her debut album “Soul Sista.” The wait is nearly over however, as KeKe Wyatt has plans to start fresh in 2010 !
Announcing a new deal with Shanachie recently, home to Leela James, KeKe Wyatt is poised to release a new album as early as February 2010.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing out Keke’s new music,” Shanachie general manager and head of A&R, Randall Grass said in a statement. “She is one of the outstanding singers of her generation and is recognized as a true singer. Keke achieved success at a young age and now she is poised for even greater success.”
While Wyatt’s music has stood the test of time, the singer tells Eurweb‘s Lee Bailey, her controversial, headline ridden marriage is nearly over. “Those 10 years are over. They’re over,” Wyatt told Bailey when discussing a new record titled “Who Knew?” and her marriage. “You go through so much as a woman and you can’t take too much of the hands on type of thing. I refuse to do it anymore and so I’m done. I’m done.”
Moving forward, Wyatt looks forward to the release of her new album, also titled ‘Who Knew?”. Set for release February 23, 2010, the album is due to feature a mix of up-tempo and R&B ballads.
