Grammy Award-winning artist Anthony Hamilton is back with his next project. What I’m Feelin’, the singer’s fifth studio album, will be released by RCA Records on March 25.

What I’m Feelin’ reunites Hamilton with Mark Batson, who produced 10 of the album’s 12 tracks. Batson co-wrote and produced the singer’s top 5 Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs hit “Charlene” and the title track from his breakthrough second album, Comin’ From Where I’m From. Previous Hamilton collaborators Salaam Remi (Miguel, Amy Winehouse) and James Poyser (Mariah Carey, John Legend) recorded and produced the new album’s two remaining tracks: the single “Amen” and “Take You Home.”

 

What I'm Feelin' is a special album for me," says Hamilton. "I reconnected with one of my favorite producers, Mark Batson, who produced my most career-defining records so it made sense. Alongside my engineer Bruce Irvine, we all decided to record in Nashville so we could really focus on creating a special sound. While in Miami with Salaam Remi and James Poyser, we came up with ‘Amen’. I'm really proud of this album. I think it's a must have for R&B and soul lovers.”
