Those awaiting the release of Ne-Yo’s third LP ‘Year of The Gentleman’ will be disappointed to learn that the album has been pushed back from its June 24th release to August 5th. I’m assuming Def Jam are going for the 2-single pre-album release strategy, as the set’s first cut ‘Closer’ seems to be slowing down on the charts (#54 on the Billboard Hot 100).
In any case, ‘Trouble’, which will feature on the record, should help ease the wait. The R&B/Pop/Dance fusion further embraces the sound the singer/songwriter channeled on ‘Closer’. Very ‘European’ sounding. With each track I hear from the set, I’m becoming increasingly more amped for what the record will be delivering. Good stuff.
