Earth, Wind & Fire have announced that the release of Now, Then & Forever, their first studio album in eight years, has been moved to October 7th.
The lead track, My Promise is a massive radio hit, going straight onto the Radio 2 A List last week and their Record Of The Week before that.
“The Now, Then & Forever album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire”, said co-founder Philip Bailey. “The spirit of the band has always been about uplifting the consciousness of humanity. There’s a hope that this Earth, Wind & Fire music will go on forever.”
“The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally,” said Earth, Wind & Fire’s co-founder Verdine White. “Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible. We dedicate this album, Now, Then & Forever, to all the fans.”
Earth, Wind & Fire, the groundbreaking funk-rock-soul-jazz ensemble who have been laying down their signature grooves for more than 40 years, will be bringing the sounds of Now, Then & Forever to the UK for two live shows in October. Dates are:- October 19th – Royal Albert Hall. October 20th – Manchester Apollo.
