Today, one of the most successful writer-producer duos in modern pop history, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, released the track, “Til I Found You” featuring the Grammy Award-winning group, Sounds of Blacknesswith lead vocals by Ann Nesby, Big Jim Wright who recently passed and Lauren Evans. Announced exclusively via Billboard, the track is the first single off the duo’s first ever compilation album, Jam & Lewis: VOLUME ONE, which will feature all original new music from mega superstar acts. The album will be released via Jam and Lewis’ record label, Perspective Records, and distributed by Caroline this summer.
Jam and Lewis chose to lay the foundation with Sounds of Blackness as the first release from this project, since the group was the debut act to be signed on the original Perspective Records. Adorned with powerful vocals and an uplifting message, the inspirational track can be listened to here.
“Sounds of Blackness will always hold such a special place in our hearts because they were the first act we signed to our original record label,” said Jimmy Jam. “We felt it was only right for this single with them to introduce our compilation album.”
“It felt great to be back in the studio with Sounds of Blackness and create new music we’re really proud of,” said Terry Lewis. “The track definitely sets the tone for the album, and we can’t wait for our fans to hear what’s next.”
While Jam and Lewis have spent their careers shaping the sounds of legendary musicians, Jam & Lewis: VOLUME ONE is the duo’s first compilation project. Over the past few decades, Jam and Lewis have earned more than 100 gold, platinum, multi-platinum and diamond albums for their work with artists, such as Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, Boyz II Men, Usher, Earth Wind and Fire, Gwen Stefani and Kanye West. Last year, Jam and Lewis curated the 10-day Super Bowl Live music festival in their hometown of Minneapolis, which featured acts, includingIdina Menzel, Rae Sremmurd, The Jets, KING, Skylar Grey and more.
