Soul/R&B crooner Eric Roberson is gearing up to release his 8th studio album sometime this summer. Singersroom caught up with the “She” hitmaker recently at an ASCAP pre-Grammy event and he shared with us some progress, single choice and features. A Grammy Nominationâ¦Oh very excited! It’s my second year in a row, last year and this year. We’re just trying to have a good time.
Constant Touringâ¦“It’s been good. We literally toured all the way up to this Grammy weekend. And I was home for one day, washed clothes, and I’m back on the road again, you know what I’m saying? So it’s good. We’re just trying to stay active. I have a whole new album ready, so we’re going to release that in July. So we’re just hoping to be back here next year.”
The New Singleâ¦“I’m going to name the album, shoot the album cover, and mix the rest of the songs. We’re probably going to do another month of recording as well, but I think we have the first single and everything already. If I had to put my money on it right now, it’s a song called “Couldn’t Draw You Better” featuring Phonte from Little Brother and Foreign Exchange. And if I had to say, that’s probably the one, but you never know; things may change within the next month or two.”
Other Single Potentialâ¦“We have something called “Strangers” that I really really like. I did it with a brother that I like, Hezekiah from Philadelphia. I’m really excited about the song. But I don’t know! I have a ton of songs and that needs to be condensed to figure out what’s going on the album. But those two are the main leaders for possible singles.”
Other Guest Appearancesâ¦“Well now is the part where we start looking for guest appearances. There’s a young lady, Choklate from Seattle that I did a duet with, Phonte’s on it, the brother Hezekiah that I mentioned is on the album as well… But that’s it as of now. But you never know; the studio’s open and there’s mad people coming in & out. So we’re just open to whoever wants to get on the mic, we’re going to let them rock.”
