Veteran R&B singer/songwriter Avant will release his eighth studio album, The VIII, on September 25 via MO-B Entertainment/Caroline. Led by the single, "Special," the thirteen-song set features production by Travis Sayles and Bob Robinson (Tim & Bob), and will spotlight Avant's "magnetic voice and beautifully interwoven lyrics."
"I try to keep everything in perspective as things just go on in life. I'm a writer that writes from real life—a narrative. I try to write from what I see… I keep it fresh and new for the people," states the Cleveland native. "With all my music, I want to leave classics that everyone will remember and be a part of the soundtrack of their lives."
The VIII is also a celebratory body of work for Avant, who has been 15 years strong in R&B. On the album, he continues to create his signature formula of success, touching the emotional chord of the listener.
Avant will support The VIII with a new tour, which will be announced later in the summer.
2015 is going to be a great year for R&B!
