Vanessa Williams To Release First Album In 15 Years Under Her Own Record Label

Vanessa Williams is returning to her music roots with the announcement of her new single, “Legs (Keep Dancing)” from her new album — her first in 15 years.
 

The LP will be distributed under her own record label, Mellian Music, a joint venture with Mod Squad, LLC, GoDigiPath, LLC, and ADA Worldwide.

“What a joy it is to be making new music behind the [mic] again with old friends,”  said the 61-year-old in a statement. “There’s a certain comfort in creating new works in the studio while reminiscing about how so many years in this business have brought successes, excitement, and lasting memories. Always moving forward is what drives me. Every challenge is exciting. And more new music to share with my fans is the fuel that lights my fire.”

 


“A true multi-hyphenate and savvy businesswoman, there’s not much Vanessa can’t do,” added Cat Kreidich, President, ADA Worldwide.

Mod Squad CEO, Tony Prendatt, described Williams’ new album as one that “surrounds Vanessa’s vocal gifts and performances with stellar acoustic and electronic performances by real musicians, real writers, real producers,” calling it a “real music album.” He also noted that it will be an album that “will touch on all of Vanessa’s experiences in the pop, R&B, latin, jazz, and dance genres.” “Legs (Keep Dancing)” is slated for release on April 26. The full album will arrive later this year.

 

 


Of the new album, songwriter Kipper Jones says, “You can call it a comeback, a full circle moment, or just plain serendipity, but I call it a blessing to be creating more history with the iconic force of nature that is Vanessa Williams. If past is indeed prologue, we’re about to give ‘em hell again!” Jones and Williams’ working relationship dates back to her 1988 debut album, The Right Stuff. Williams is currently prepping to star as Miranda Priestly in London’s West End production of The Devil Wears Prada. Preview performances start this summer before its official opening night on October 24.
