Seal to cover Marvin Gaye and Al Green on new album

‘Soul 2’ will be released on November 21

Seal is set to cover a host of classic song songs on his forthcoming album, ‘Soul 2’.

The follow up to 2008’s ‘Soul’, will include the singer’s own versions of ‘What’s Goin’ On’ by Marvin Gaye – pictured below – and ‘Let’s Stay Together’ by Al Green – pictured above. He will also take on ‘Wishing On A Star’ by Rose Royce and ‘Love T.K.O.’ by Teddy Pendergrass, who died last year. The album is out November 21.

Produced by Trevor Horn and David Foster, the album was recorded in London and Los Angeles. Of the album, Seal says: “The songs on ‘Soul 2’ are a natural evolution in the arc of soul music from the songs on the first ‘Soul’ album and they are all-time classics.”
