Aaron Neville has enlisted an impressive pair of producers for his upcoming release-Don Was and the Rolling Stones' Keith Richards. The new effort will be released via Blue Note Records and Was says it was an honor to work with Neville and Richards.
"Aaron Neville is one of the most expressive and soulful artists of all time . . . it's such a thrill to hear him sing," Was says in a statement.
"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."
"When I was a kid, doo-wop was like medicine to me. 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," added Neville.
