MUMBAI: Grammy-winning vocalist and songwriter Seal will release a collection of his greatest songs on one CD, HITS, to be released 8 December, 2009 on Warner Bros. Records.
Fans can purchase a CD or CD/DVD package which includes the Seal ‘Soul Live’ DVD with nine live performances from his worldwide hit album Soul.
Seal Hits will span the artist’s 20-year career and comprises sixteen of Seal’s biggest hit songs, along with two new tracks. These two new recordings, produced by David Foster, extend the concept of Seal’s 2008 covers album, Soul, which has sold more than three million units worldwide. Seal brings his unique and exquisite vocal style to "I Am Your Man" written by Ashford & Simpson, first recorded by Bobby Taylor, and the Sly and The Family Stone classic "Thank You." Seal is currently in the studio recording a new album of original material to be released in 2010.
The London-born Seal first emerged from Britain’s house music scene in the early ’90s providing vocals and lyrics for techno artist Adamski’s 1990 hit "Killer." The Top Ten debut single, "Crazy," followed and Seal would go on to earn critical acclaim and worldwide commercial success over five albums. Seal’s prodigious vocal gifts — his soaring, husky baritone that has become a signature on such hits as "Prayer for the Dying," "Kiss From a Rose," and "Don’t Cry" – amplify the emotion he brings to a song.
