“It is also strongly influenced by my musical theater passion and from a deep well of personal influences that go beyond my iconic Kenyan music roots.” he continued

“Dreams in Stereo picks up from where Love + Protest left off an echoes where I have been artistically speaking,” says Eric. “But at the same time it is an even more personal and intimate album in many ways, where I felt freer to just be myself. It also explores a wide range of musical genres that are close to my heart. It definitely puts me on a new trajectory musically and creatively, and you’ll be seeing a lot more of this new direction in the months to come…in a way like you’ve never seen me. Stay tuned for a lot more to come.”

Their beauty and passion is encouraging and inspiring to anyone who aspires to join the music industry. The fact that they have worked in unity way since they began singing is a great and unique move as many would expect them to part ways just like the other groups. Despite having other occupations to work on, the three have worked without failure to ensure their game stays up in the industry.

Their collabo with various artist including Jose Chameleone from Uganda and Jaguar have never been disappointing and so far so good they are doing great.

Janet Jackson announces new album release after absence

Janet Jackson celebrated her 49th birthday Saturday by revealing to fans that she would end their seven-year wait for music by releasing a new album and embarking on a world tour in 2015. Jackson made the new album announcement in a video she tweeted out to her three million followers. The singer’s last studio LP Discipline arrived in 2008 and she last toured in 2011.

“I promised you’d hear it from my lips and now you will,” Jackson says in the voiceover of the 50-second video, filmed in what looks like a recording studio. “This year, new music, new world tour, a new movement. I’ve been listening. Let’s keep the conversation going.” Jackson’s opening line references an August 2014 tweet from the singer where she promised, “If there is a new project, you’ll hear it from my lips.”

While no release date was unveiled, Jackson hinted that her new album or its first single would be titled either “My Conversation” or “Conversations in a Café,” a hashtag both she and producer Jimmy Jam have used frequently in the past week leading up Jackson’s revelation, Billboard writes.

Jackson’s new album announcement comes just days after a leaked record store release calendar allegedly revealed that a still-untitled new Jackson album would come out on July 10th, Entertainment Weekly reports. However, Atlantic Records quickly denied that they were releasing a new Jackson album this summer, although it’s unclear whether she’s even signed to Atlantic at all. 2008’s Discipline was released via Island Records, but Jackson and the label parted ways soon after the album hit shelves.
