Will Downing To Share Tales Of 'Lust, Love And Lies' On New Album

Will Downing is adding a dramatic twist to the music on his newest project, Lust, Love
and Lies
. Due to hit stores on September 14th, Downing is billing the album as "an audio
soap opera." In addition to music, the project ill also feature conversational
vignettes that tell the love story of couple "Will" and "Dee," starting from their chance
meeting right on down to love gone awry.

Downing admits that the idea for the ambitious project first popped into his head five
years ago. "I just didn't know how to go about it at first," he says. "Then when I first
started writing the songs, it started to make sense as a story." Considered to be more
R&B-influenced than his previous 14 albums, Lust, Love and Lies also features an
appearance by former Blackstreet member-turned gospel artist, Dave Hollister, on the
gospel tune, "Safe in His Arms."
