Veteran singer/songwriter BRIAN McKNIGHT releases his twelfth studio album, ‘Better,’ on February 26th via his own label Brian McKnight Music. The Buffalo-born neo-soul auteur has received a record sixteen Grammy nominations during his twenty-five year career but has so far come up empty handed. Perhaps ‘Better’ will reverse that situation. It contains twelve new songs and features cameos from Hawaiian chanteuse Kimie Miner as well as rappers Glasses Malone and Sixx John.
McKnight describes it as a ‘back to basics’ record and says it’s about “creating music like we did 20 years ago – completely organic, all real instruments. The truth is, I’m in love and love makes us better, it makes us come alive, and I wanted to convey that through this album in a very relatable, authentic way.”
Look out for a full review and interview with Brian McKnight coming soon at SJF.
