The things people did during lockdown at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic continue to amaze. Legendary soul singer Diana Ross, for instance, took the opportunity to assemble her first album in more than a decade.
Ross announced a Sept. 10 release for Thank You, the follow-up to 2006's I Love You and her first album of original material since Every Day is a New Day in 1999. The record will feature collaborations with Jack Antonoff (producer for Taylor Swift and Lorde), Jimmy Napes (songwriting partner of Sam Smith) and Tayla Parx (songwriter for Ariana Grande, Panic! at the Disco and others). The title track can be heard below.
“This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love,” Ross declared in a statement. “I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time. I dedicate this songbook of love to all of you, the listeners. As you hear my voice you hear my heart.”
