Songs Of Solomon (S.O.S) Music/Tehillah/IndieBlu in distribution with E1 Music is proud to announce the upcoming release of Walk Alone, the fifth in-studio album from the Grammy award-winning multi-talented musician, PJ Morton. Walk Alone will be available online and in stores on February 9, 2010.
Walk Alone is a deeply personal album which consists of the inner thoughts that were written entirely by Morton with a single guest feature (from Tweet) and co-production with Warryn Campbell (Mary Mary, Brandy, Carl Thomas). The highly anticipated concept album symbolizes PJ's self-expression as well as his creative choices with music beyond the confines of record labels. PJ states, "In the state of the world I feel alone because of the way I choose to do music with true instrumentation. Creating stories and lyrics with meaning feels like a minority not a majority." As a true musician using live instrumentation during the recording process and live performances, there is a distinct connection with the soulful pop artist to his most powerful musical influence, Stevie Wonder.
Premiering 10 new infectious smooth, harmonized and soulful classics, Walk Alone includes the album's recently released lead single, "The One" which is already a Top 50 record on the Urban AC charts. The pristine vocals and sultry sound of the single delivers the message of 'finding that special someone with whom you want to settle down with and spend the rest of your life with' as when PJ notices a woman whose aura instantly captivates him and he thinks she just might be 'the one.' Other tracks on Walk Alone include the album-title track "Walk Alone," "Girlfriend", "Don't Ever Leave" and "Mountains and Molehills" which fans are already pleading to be the next single.
As a newlywed, PJ penned the melodic "Forever" for his wife Kortni. Other standout tracks include "She's Gone" (co-produced with Warryn Campbell), "I Need Your Love," where PJ communicates a man's vulnerability in the love he has for his woman and "Love You More". Singer Tweet collaborates with PJ on this reggae inspired jam. On Walk Alone, PJ digs beneath the surface, and is evidenced on "Son of A Preacherman" where for the first time he publicly articulates his relationship with his father.
Shaping out to be a phenomenal year for PJ, he recently supplied the vocals to the record, "Sanja" which was written and produced by Oscar award-winning composer A.R. Rahman (Slum Dog Millionaire) which was played over the closing credits of the blockbuster movie hit, 'Couples Retreat' and a fan favorite on the soundtrack.
The Grammy, Stellar and Dove Award-winning songwriter/producer has written and produced for a wide array of artists such as the soulful India Arie to gospel superstars Fred Hammond, Mary Mary & DeWayne Woods to working with Jermaine Dupri to co-write for Jagged Edge, Ruben Studdard and Musiq Soulchild.
In conjunction with the release of Walk Alone, the Walk Alone Tour will criss-cross the country beginning February 14th in Atlanta, GA at Centerstage and will run throughout winter and spring until the end of April.
