Taking the record slowly and carefully, Seal will reveal some of the songs in a tour first before rounding them up in an album.
As a try out plus a warming up for his newest album, Seal will preview the material in a short US tour. Scheduled for second half of May, the trek will begin May 15 in Westbury, NY and end May 30 in Dallas, TX.
Seal has neither come up with the album's name that follows 2003's "Seal IV" nor did he set the release date. He did though, keeps his fans posted with the recording progress on his official website. "I am having a really good time making this record," he wrote. "There is an excitement in the studio a bit like the first record I made only this time with a lot more peacefulness."
Helmed by Bill Bottrell, the album employs a dance swing, something that Seal described as 'what I always wanted to do'. He wrote, "Over the years I've somehow become more known for my ballads which I also love doing but dance music has always been close to my heart. Make no mistake, there will also be a killer ballad or three on this record but at this point in my life I really want to make something that is more dance directed."
Seal will continue the May tour with European dates that starts June 9 in Munich, Germany and wraps up July 20 in Lucerne, Switzerland.
