Internationally Acclaimed Singer And Songwriter Seal To Release New Album, Seal 6: Commitment, On September 28th

Seal re-teams with legendary producer David Foster, who produced his best-selling collection Soul

Internationally acclaimed vocalist and songwriter Seal will release his sixth studio album, Seal 6: Commitment, in U.S. And Canada on September 28, 2010 on Reprise /Warner Music Canada . The first single is âSecret,â a deeply moving, string-laden ballad that ranks among Sealâs finest love songs. Commitment finds the london-born, three-time Grammy Award winner re-teaming with renowned music Maestro David Foster, who also produced 2008âs Soul, Sealâs stunning covers collection of soul classics.

âI asked David to produce Commitment because quite simply, heâs the most incredible person Iâve worked with in the studio for a very long time,â Seal says. âHeâs one of a kind. I donât think thereâs an arranger and producer anywhere on the planet who can do what he does.â

Foster is equally complimentary of Seal. âHis voice is so unique and he has such command of it â his tone and musicality are unequaled,â Foster says, adding that Seal was on a mission while in the studio making commitment. âHe was in fearless, relentless pursuit of greatness â no one was going to obscure his path. The album is full of beautiful musical surprises and his songwriting has never been better. He says it may be his best work yet and i think he may be right.â

âWhen all things in your life begin to align in the way they have for me over the past few years, you become incredibly focused,â Seal explains. âI love a challenge, and this for me, has been the greatest challenge of my career: to write an album that exceeds my own expectations.â

While showcasing Sealâs one-of-a-kind husky baritone, ear for unforgettable melodies, and unique lyrical point of view, songs such as âSecret,â âThe Weight of My Mistakes,â âBest of Me,â and âIf I'm Any Closer,â delve into the emotions surrounding love, family, and commitment, hence the title. âEverything about my life is fully committed,â he says. âI've never felt more focused on the matter at hand: my wife, my children, the family in general, my own well-being, and of course music and my career. Each one of these songs has personal meaning for me. I dug very deep and all I can hope for is that the music strikes a chord with people.â

Over the course of a remarkable career that spans more than two decades, Seal has sold more than 15 million albums worldwide and enjoyed success across numerous genres of music. His emotional, romantic love songs such as âPrayer for the Dying,â the Grammy Award-winning âKiss From a Rose,â and âDonât Cry,â (all from 1994âs Seal II), and âLoveâs Divineâ (from 2003âs Seal IV), delighted fans and earned him critical acclaim. He has also seen great success in the dance/pop music world beginning with his roots in Britainâs house music/rave scene with his debut 1991 album and returning to those roots with 2007âs dancefloor-friendly system. In 2008, Seal released Soul â a stunning compilation of classic soul songs delivered with Sealâs unique, signature touch. A NO. 1 album in France, Soul remained atop the album chart for 13 consecutive weeks.
