Last month, Eric Benet teased fans with a ray of “Sunshine,” a snippet of the new single from his forthcoming album (his first LP in four years) to arrive this fall.
Now he’s officially dropped the full summer single and its video, which features Benet performing the song in a studio. His daughter India appears in the clip as a background singer.
“‘Sunshine’ is a reflective memory about a relationship that has lost its spark, with a longing for how love-filled & joyous their lives used to be in the past,” said Benét. “The song will hopefully inspire people to actively create and savor the joy and ‘sunshine’ in every one of their relationships.”
The “Sunshine” experience is interactive: Fans are invited to share his new single by tagging Eric and adding the phrase: Readyfor#SUNSHINE, along with images of the sun or other #SUNSHINE-inspired images, in posts on their social sites. Eric will “like,” retweet and repost his favorite fan posts.
