R&B group Silk has unveiled the cover for their up-coming new album release “Quiet Storm,” available March 18th. The album features production by Wirlie Morris and delivers a sparkling set of all-originals that deliver Silk‘s classic style, but with an updated and refreshing sound palette.
Check out the hot new visual for their new single “Love 4 U 2 Like“.
Silk got together as teenagers in 1989 in Atlanta and before long their talents caught the eye of hit-making artist/producer Keith Sweat, who signed the young singers, becoming their mentor. By 1992 their classic line-up of Gary “Big G” Glenn, Gary “Li’l G” Jenkins, Timothy “Timzo” Cameron, Jimmy Gates, Jr., and Jonathan “John John” Rasboro had solidified and Silk scored their first hit with “Happy Days,” followed by their #1 R&B smash “Freak Me” in 1993. Silk was blessed with a decade-plus run of charts hits, including such staples as “Lose Control,” “Girl U For Me,” “I Can Go Deep,” “Hooked On You” and “Meeting In My Bedroom,” selling nearly 3 million albums in the process. In 2004 “Li’l G” Jenkins launched a solo career, appearing in Tyler Perry’s play Madea’s Family Reunion and the group continued as a quartet, releasing an album of covers, Always & Forever in 2006 and performing concerts worldwide. In 2014, “Li’l G” rejoined the group and they began working on material for a new album. Show-stopping performances on televised Soul Train Awards, BET Music Awards and the Trumpet Awards, demonstrated Silk’s ongoing vitality and whetted their fans appetite for new Silk music. The Quiet Storm album is the fruit of two years of crafting just the right material and “Love 4 U 2 Like” is a great example of the quality of the upcoming album.
