R&B singer KEM is fast at work on his third album, the follow up to 2005’s gold-certified disc “Album II.” “I’m know for making love songs,” says Kem, who spoke with Billboard recently, “so we thought we’d explore that word, that idea — not only sensual intimacy but the true meaning of relationships and opening yourself up to somebody and allowing them to do the same with you. While the R&B star has the focus of the album down, a release date or time period cannot be confirmed at this time. “I can’t get it done quick enough,” the Detroit-based artist (real name Kim Owens) told Billboard.com. “I’m breathing down my neck. The internal pressure is always more intense than the external pressure. The fans are ready for new music. Everybody’s ready for it. KEM says the album, which he’s been recording in Detroit, “shows my evolution as a songwriter and a producer.” It may also include a superstar duet that’s still in the negotiating stages. The “Intimacy” title indicates the set’s theme, though KEM says it’s not all about that kind of intimacy. “The song ‘Mother’s Love’ is about maternal intimacy between a mother and child. There are spiritual love songs on the album, too. Life is about relationships — good, bad or indifferent. That’s what we will be exploring on this new album.” Kem’s new album is slated for release sometime next year.
