Earth, Wind & Fire are to release their first new studio album in eight years on 7th October.
Now, Then & Forever is the group’s first new material since 2005 and it’s their first that isn’t a compilation or live collection. Fans can pre-order the album for a limited time at www.NowThenandForever.com and get their names printed in the album’s final CD package. New single My Promise will also debut on the site.
“The Now, Then & Forever album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire”, said co-founder Philip Bailey. “The spirit of the band has always been about uplifting the consciousness of humanity. There’s a hope that this Earth, Wind & Fire music will go on forever.”
“The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally,” said EWF’s co-founder Verdine White. “Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible. We dedicate this album, Now, Then & Forever, to all the fans.”
