“Singing is my beautiful, delicious obsession,” the legendary legend Diana Ross purrs in her new song “Thank You” – released just hours ago.
via Rolling Stone:
From its springy groove to its air of positivity, “Thank You” conjures Ross’ “Upside Down” and “I’m Coming Out” era. The modern twist comes from its producer and co-writer, Troy Miller, who made a name for himself as Amy Winehouse’s drummer but has gone on to produce tracks with Calvin Harris and Emeli Sandé. Miller also played the bulk of instruments on the track, including guitar, keyboards, and the rhythm section. The track also features contributors from songwriters Amy Wadge (who co-wrote “Thinking Out Loud” with Ed Sheeran), Nathaniel Ledwidge, and Alabama-born pop singer Christian Paul Wossilek as well as Ross.
Her comeback album Thank You, is set for September release, and it her first album since 2006’s I Love You. The 13-track Thank You will consist of original material and collaborations with Jack Antonoff, Spike Stent, and other producers. Work on the album began just before last year’s studio lockdown, but Ross was able to record the vocals for the songs in her home studio.
