Lyfe Jennings is giving us another peek into his upcoming album, Tree of Lyfe, which debuts June 23rd. In almost six minutes, Lyfe gives us a taste of the 11-track album he recorded almost entirely in his home studio. Starting with his single “I Love You,” and its endearing yet laughable lyrics, the sample moves through tracks that each add to Lyfe’s story. To add a little feminine energy to the album, Lyfe also includes duets with songstresses Algebra Blessett and Demetria McKinney, which you’ll have to wait to hear in their entirety when you buy the album. As you listen to the sampler, you’ll notice that Lyfe stays true to his honest storytelling style as he lays his raspy vocals over classic R&B tracks.
To celebrate his album release, Lyfe will perform live on The Tom Joyner Morning Show and will continue to tour and hit cities like Orlando, Phoenix and Portland to promote his return to music. We also hear he’s slated to make an appearance on VH1’s Love & Hip Hop, where his song “Pretty Is” will serve as the backdrop for some of the reality shenanigans. Lyfe has quite a bit in store for us, but in the meantime you can cop his latest singles “I Love You” and “Pretty Is” and go ahead and pre-order his sixth studio album Tree of Lyfe over on iTunes. Listen to his album sampler below, and let us know if you’ll be adding Tree of Lyfe to your summer playlist.
