Peabo Bryson, whose hit-filled catalog includes “A Whole New World (Aladdin’s Theme),” “Feel the Fire,” “Beauty and the Beast” and “Tonight I Celebrate My Love,” is back with his 21st studio album. Stand for Love arrives Aug. 3 and will feature Bryson’s current single “Love Like Yours and Mine” (No. 12 this week on Billboard’s R&B Songs tally) and “All She Wants to Do Is Me” (which premiered earlier this year on Showtime’s The Chi).
Stand for Love finds the Grammy Award-winning R&B/pop icon teaming with longtime hitmakers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. He is also signed to the songwriting/production duo’s Perspective Records, distributed by Caroline.
In a statement announcing his impending release, Bryson said, “Music is my passion and when it feels right, like ‘Stand For Love’ does, the whole world has an opportunity to experience the same energy. All of the right elements fell into place for this project and I challenged Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis to make me current…while maintaining the integrity of what I have built as an important body of work.”
