Raise your hand if you’re ready for more Teena Marie! Well, so are we, and thankfully, we won’t have to wait much longer as the legendary Lady Tee’s new disc on the Stax Records imprint, Congo Square, is set to drop on June 9th. The album, Teena’s 13th studio disc, will feature Howard Hewett, Shirley Murdock, her daughter Rose LeBeau, and of course, Faith Evans. By all accounts, this may be just the soul we need to usher in the summer months.
You can pre-order the album here, but in the meantime and in between time, check after the bounce for footage of a recent session between Teena and photographer Randee St. Nicholas. And if you listen very carefully, you’ll be able to hear selected tracks featured on Congo in the background. Good times.
