R&B artist Brian McKnight will on March 25 release a new studio album, "U-Turn," via Universal/Motown. The set finds the artist collaborating with such guest vocalists as Nelly, Carl Thomas, Fabolous, Tyrese, and Kirk Franklin.

The first single from the new set, "Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda," chimed in at No. 23 this week on Billboard's Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Singles chart. Other tunes due to appear on "U-Turn" include "All Night Long" with Nelly; "Good Enough" with Joe, Carl Thomas, Tyrese, and Tank; and the title song, featuring Fabolous.

"U-Turn" is the follow-up to 2001's "Superhero," which debuted at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 870,000 copies in the U.S., according to Nielsen SoundScan. A greatest hits album, "1989-2002: From There to Here," debuted last November at No. 62 on The Billboard 200.

McKnight scored a 2003 Grammy nomination for best R&B performance by a duo or group with vocal, for his Kenny G collaboration "All the Way." The 45th annual Grammy Awards will air Sunday night (Feb. 23) at 8 p.m. ET on CBS.
