Never miss another 'Seal' show
The award-winning vocalist and songwriter has announced a brand new UK tour for November and December this year, his first in three years. The tour will support the release of his new album, Soul 2, out now on Warner Bros.
With Soul 2, his eighth studio album, Seal pays loving homage to that vibrant time in his own musical life, bringing his immense talents and deep sensibilities to songs that were coming out of Detroit, Memphis and especially Philadelphia, a sound that in England became known as Northern Soul.
Working with producer Trevor Horn (who launched Seal's career and produced his first four albums) and on four songs David Foster (who produced Seal's first foray into the classics catalogue, the international hit 2008 album Soul, and 2010's Commitment), Seal at once internalizes and evokes the spirit of such musical giants as Marvin Gaye, Teddy Pendergrass, Smokey Robinson, Bill Withers, the Spinners and the O'Jays.
As a set, they show a time that defies capsulizing and cliches, a time of complex emotions and issues. And it allows Seal to expand the range and talents he's shown throughout his career, on such hits as his international Top 10 1990 debut 'Crazy' and the 1995 U.S. No. 1 'A Kiss From A Rose', which earned him Grammy Awards for song of the year, record of the year and best male pop vocal performance.

Seal first came to attention when he provided the vocals for Adamski's track 'Killer', a track that enjoyed phenomenal success and spent four weeks at #1. His debut single 'Crazy' was even bigger, topping the charts in three countries. Since then he has enjoyed phenomenal international success with his two eponymous albums (released in 1991 and 1994) and 'Human Being' (1998). His 1995 Top 5 hit 'Kiss From A Rose' won two Grammy Awards for Song Of The Year and Best Male Pop Vocal Performance.
