Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Brian McKnight announces the release of his new album, “Just Me,” on July 12, 2011. “Just Me” will be a two-disc set, and will include a full studio album and a bonus live disc.
McKnight says, “For me, one of the greatest things about this album is that all the new tracks were collaborations between me and my sons BJ & Niko. Under the name C.A.T.S., we wrote and co-produced these tracks with a sound I think the fans are going to love.”
The first single, the catchy ballad “Fall,” was #1 most added this week at Urban AC radio, with 26 adds. The single is now available on iTunes.
