Diana Ross is back. The music icon has announced that her 25th album, Thank You, will arrive in September via Decca Records/Universal Music Group. The album, which was recorded in her home, will mark her first LP in 15 years, following 2006’s I Love You.
“This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love. I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time,” Ross said in a press release.
Along with the album announcement, the R&B diva has issued the title track as the lead single. “Thank You” is a tenderhearted tune that expresses Ross’ gratitude to someone she loves.
On the piano-laden track, she sings, “Thank you for smiles / Thank you for the tears / Thank you for being who you are for all those years / Thank you for joy / You are the reason why / Thank you for the loving you have brought into my life.”
Thank You, the album, will contain 13 tracks which were all co-written by Ross. She collaborated with a mix of songwriters and producers to bring the project to life including: Jack Antonoff, Troy Miller, Triangle Park, Spike Stent, Prince Charlez, Amy Wadge, Neff-U, Freddie Wexler, Jimmy Napes, Tayla Parx, Fred White, and Nathanial Ledgewick.
