Fittingly, the Philadelphia studio that R&B singer Musiq has been holed up in for the past few months working on his third LP, Soulstar, is named Home Cookin.' It seems the singer is always aiming to make tunes that leave you feeling fulfilled, as though you'd just eaten a hearty meal.
According to his label spokesperson, Musiq has set a release date of December 2 for his album and is almost ready to unveil his first single to the world, an uptempo number entitled "Forthenight." The idiosyncratic crooner stuck to the usual ingredients for his musical buffet, working with his writing partner Carvin Haggins and Ivan Barias, who produced most of his first two albums.
Besides the single, Musiq covered the Rolling Stones' "Miss You" and is offering up other cuts on the album like "Romancipation," "Love Me" and "Who Knows." Currently there are no guest stars on Soulstar playing major roles, but Musiq's rep said fellow R&B singer Kenny Lattimore laid background vocals for one song.
The singer is currently finalizing a treatment for the "Forthenight" video.
