Sunshine Anderson Sets Release Date For Third LP, Talks Inspiration From Failed Marriage

R&B sweetheart Sunshine Anderson has teamed with Verve Forecast for the release of her highly anticipated upcoming third studio album ‘The Sun Shines Again.’ In stores Tuesday, November 2, ‘The Sun Shines Again’ reunites Anderson with hit-maker producer, Mike City, the man who signed Anderson to her first recording contract in 2000 and most recently to his Unsung Records. Kicking off the album will be the lead single “Lie To Kick It,” which is currently the nation’s #1 Most Added track on the Adult R&B and UAC formats. Anderson’s debut album, ‘Your Woman,’ was a successful crossover smash. The disc debuted on the Billboard 200 (later peaking at #5) and #2 on the R&B Albums chart and kicked out hit singles “Heard It All Before” (#1 Hot R&B/Hip Hop, #18 Hot 100, #3 R&B) and its follow-up “Lunch Or Dinner” (#54 R&B) before achieving RIAA Gold status in May 2001. Sunshine’s sophomore album, ‘Sunshine at Midnight,’ was released in January 2007, and generated the charting R&B singles “Something I Wanna Give You” and “Force of Nature.” The album was release on Music World Entertainment but Sunshine amicably parted ways with the label soon thereafter. In February 2007, Anderson became pregnant and got married in July of that same year. Soon thereafter, Sunshine decided to take a brief break to concentrate on motherhood and devote time to her daughter. Although the marriage came to an end, Sunshine used the trials and hardships that the relationship had undergone as fuel to create her new body of work. “You give up so much as a wife, and a mother, and a girlfriend; that sometimes you forget who you are. And so when you finally have the time to sit with yourself, and figure out who you are – it’s a great day. Can’t nobody take my shine right now!” Sunshine says with conviction.
