The magnificent Temptations have just announced a brand new album, All The Time, their first new studio set in eight years.
To be released in the UK by UMC on CD, vinyl LP and digital formats, All The Time features the Temps’ own renditions of songs by Sam Smith, Bruno Mars, John Mayer, Maxwell, Ed Sheeran, Michael Jackson, and The Weeknd, alongside three new, original Temptations songs. The digital format includes two tracks available for immediate download and streaming today [Friday, March 16] with album preorder, as well as two bonus track remixes.
All The Time is produced and arranged by Dave Darling, also known for his work with, among others, Glen Campbell, Brian Setzer, Tom Waits, and Janiva Magness.
Among the cover versions, the group transforms Sam Smith’s Stay With Me into a stirring soul-gospel love song. Look out, too, for Temps-style takes of Earned It originally recorded by The Weeknd for Fifty Shades of Grey, Thinking Out Loud, originally by Ed Sheeran and Maxwell’s Pretty Wings. The digital album’s two bonus tracks are a spare Gospel Mix for the rendition of Sam Smith’s Stay With Me and a special ‘Heathens Mix’ for funky original tune Move Them Britches.
