Living Colour Frontman Corey Glover Gets Soulful On Solo Album

Corey Glover, former frontman for the funk-rock outfit Living Colour, is about to resurface with a decidedly more R&B sound on his first solo effort for Babyface's La Face Records.

Glover, who along with Living Colour was one of the artists to grace the stage on Lollapalooza's inaugural outing (see "It's A Lollapalooza! Looking Back: 1991"), will release "Hymns" on La Face on May 19, and with it hopes to reveal a more soulful side of his songwriting.

"I really pushed myself as a songwriter," Glover said of preparing his solo album. "I was reaching into areas I never had before."

The fruits of those efforts were revealed when the album's first single, "Do You First, Then Do Myself," hit radio last week.

Glover will take his act on the road this summer in support of "Hymns," but does not have an itinerary firmed up.
