Brandy Shows ‘Human’ Side on New Album


Epic Records has officially announced the release of Human, the fifth studio album from Brandy, available online and in stores on November 11th.

The album’s title is a real life mirror of Brandy as a woman, an artist, a musician and a performer, communicating what it means to be fully Human: strong yet vulnerable, candid and triumphant, in love with life and in touch with the things of the spirit.

Human is my most personal album to date,” said Brandy. “I have grown so much since my last album. Being able to express myself and my journey through my music is a feeling I can’t describe. With this new chapter of my life it feels good to have Rodney, a familiar face, by my side again. He brings out emotions in me like nobody else.”

Reunited with executive producer Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, who first collaborated with Brandy on her 1998 multi-platinum-selling collection Never Say Never, Brandy has created the most emotionally resonant album of her career with songs and performances reflecting the truth and complexity of her experiences.

“It feels good to be back in the lab with Brandy again,” said Rodney Jerkins. “We’ve always made great records and I’m humbled and honored to be continuing our legacy. The sound might be new, bigger, and more uplifting but we’ve kept our musical promise by making great songs and great music once again. There is no musical combination like ours!!!”

Other key tracks on Human include “Fall,” which Brandy co-wrote with British pop singer/songwriter Natasha Bedingfield, as well as the new songs “Long Distance,” “Piano Man,” and “Torn Down.” Brandy’s other musical collaborators on Human include Brian Kennedy (Rihanna/”Disturbia”), emerging production whiz RedOne (Kat DeLuna, 2006 World Cup Official Single “Hips Don’t Lie” with Shakira & Wyclef Jean), and James Fauntleroy (Jordin Sparks/”No Air”).

“Right Here (Departed),” the first single from Human, will impact Pop radio on September 16th. The single and ringtone are scheduled to be released on August 26th, with a digital pre-order for the album slated the same day. Listen to the song here.

    Although their ALWAYS in the public eye with every moment of their lives being documented either on paper or on tape we need to realize that these stars are only HUMAN, just like us! They laugh, cry and bleed, just like we do. Seeing Brandy back is a phenominal feeling and I am looking forward to the release of her new “LP”. I’d really like to see her and Miss Thang, Monica get together again, but that’s another story.
    Welcome Back Ms. Norwood!
