Ann Nesby is preparing for the release of her latest album, This Is Love, to be released September 25, 2007, by Shanachie Records. In the album Ann Nesby returns to the inspirational R&B of her top-selling albums with a stunning set of all-original songs that is destined to be not only one of the yearâs best R&B releases but also one of the most meaningful. Working with up-and-coming producers J. Isaac (who produced grand-daughter Paris Bennettâs album on the heels of her making the finals of American Idol), Paul Jones and Darnell âBaby Dâ Davis, Ann moves effortlessly from the gospel of her last album In The Spirit to the inspirational R&B of This Is Love. Nesby is without a doubt one of finest, most powerful and emotive R&B singers of the past twenty years. Loved by everyone from American Idolâs Randy Jackson, who calls her âone of the best singers in the world,â and Al Green, who declares her as âa real soul singer,â Ann Nesby occupies an unusual niche in the music industry, that of an inspirational R&B artist. Highlights on This Is Love include the upbeat and celebratory songs âI Canât Explain Itâ and âThis Could Be Love,â the affirmative ballad âSpecial Occasion,â the ironic âThank Godâ and the sobering âI Apologize,â one of Annâs favorite songs on the CD. While some listeners may be surprised to hear the song âItâs So Easy Lovinâ U,â a house-music rave-up, devoted Ann Nesby fans will be right at home. The Georgia-based vocalist says, âIn all of the projects that Iâve done recently there has always been at least one up-tempo dance track. This goes back to the hit âThe Pressureââ which I recorded with Sounds Of Blackness. Iâve kept up with fans of that style of music so I always try to give the dance community at least one song that is uplifting and dance-worthy.â
