Eric Benét to Release "Lost in Time" in November

R&B soul singer, songwriter and producer Eric Benét, who is still known for cheating on ex-wife Halle Berry years ago, will release his fifth studio album, Lost in Time, on Reprise Records this November. Featuring duets with Faith Evans, Chrisette Michele, Ledisi and the O'Jays' Eddie Levert, Lost in Time is at once a sumptuous homage to and an expansion of the sweet soul of the 1970's. Cut to the crackling fire, champagne chilling on ice, exotic chocolates and some Benét tunes for those romantic nights.
"People just need to have some feel good R&B in their lives," said the three-time Grammy Award nominee. "I want people to remember what music can feel like, and that desire took me all the way back to that time. My development as an artist is a direct result of being immersed in that era." To keep his connection to the music that shaped him, Benét returned to his hometown of Milwaukee and recorded with local musicians, including the Milwaukee Symphony's string section. "When it comes to something that resonates in your soul, you have to have something constructed with live musicians," Benét said.
To support Lost in Time, Benét will embark on a nationwide tour with Grammy-nominated (and emotionally recovering) J Records recording artist Fantasia. The five-week long tour launches in November.
