Aaron Neville joins Blue Note Records

We’re very proud to announce that iconic soul/R&B vocalist Aaron Neville has joined EMI’s Blue Note Records to release a full-length album later this year. The record, a collection of classic material from the doo-wop era, has been produced by Keith Richards and Blue Note Records President Don Was.

Says Was: “Aaron Neville is one of the most expressive and soulful artists of all time…it’s such a thrill to hear him sing. His vocals have a way of reaching into your heart and stirring something really deep inside. It’s a huge honor to welcome him to Blue Note Records and to be involved, along with the legendary Keith Richards, in the production of this album.”

All of the tracks have been hand-picked by Neville himself as they are songs that have remained close to his heart since he was a child. “When I was a kid, doo-wop was like medicine to me,” he says. “I didn’t care what else was goin’ on in the world as long as I could sing along with Pookie Hudson and The Spaniels, The Flamingos, The Clovers, Sonny Til and The Orioles, Clyde McPhatter – I was like a kid in a candy store.”
