The contemporary R&B artist and soul singer Sunshine Anderson is verging on her hottest record ever as her eagerly-anticipated new single, “Lie To Kick It,” a key track from her forthcoming new album, becomes the nation’s #1 Most Added track on the Adult R&B and UAC formats.
Beginning Tuesday, September 21, fans can stream the full song on Sunshine’s website or download the single on iTunes.
The immediate impact of “Lie To Kick It,” an old school take on new school rules, provides a tantalizing first taste of The Sun Shines Again, Sunshine’s much-awaited premiere album for Verve Forecast, available everywhere on Tuesday, November 2.
The Sun Shines Again reunites Anderson with producer Mike City, who’s worked with the artist since she arrived on the scene with her breakout debut album, Your Woman. A successful crossover smash, Your Woman signaled the arrival of a major new voice in American soul music. A certified crossover victory, the album debuted on the Billboard 200 (later peaking at #5) and #2 on the R&B Albums chart and kicked out hit singles “Heard It All Before” (#1 Hot R&B/Hip Hop, #18 Hot 100, #3 R&B) and its follow-up “Lunch Or Dinner” (#54 R&B) before achieving RIAA Gold status in May 2001.
Sunshine’s sophomore album, Sunshine at Midnight, was released in January 2007, and generated the charting R&B singles “Something I Wanna Give You” and “Force of Nature” as well as the bubbling-under “Wear The Crown.” The album was release on Music World Entertainment but Sunshine amicably parted ways with the label soon thereafter.
In February 2007, Anderson became pregnant and got married in July of that same year. Soon thereafter, Sunshine decided to take a brief break to concentrate on motherhood and devote time to her daughter. Although the marriage came to an end, Sunshine used the trials and hardships that the relationship had undergone as fuel to create her new body of work. “You give up so much as a wife, and a mother, and a girlfriend; that sometimes you forget who you are. And so when you finally have the time to sit with yourself, and figure out who you are – it’s a great day. Can’t nobody take my shine right now!” Sunshine says with conviction.
The Sun Shines Again brings the welcome dawning of a bright new day for Sunshine Anderson and her fans.
‘The Sun Shines Again’ Available on November 2nd!
