Jazz Musician Boney James announced today that his latest album, Solid will move its’ release from April 10 to June 12, 2020 due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. In addition tour dates will also be rescheduled and announced soon via his website weekly.
Solid is the follow up to Boney’s smash 2017 release Honestly, which became his eleventh #1 Billboard Contemporary Jazz Album. Boney has released three singles from “Solid” including “Be Here” (featuring Kenny Lattimore,) “Solid” and the newest “Full Effect” that was released on Friday, March 27th. He has also been performing a new song every Friday on Facebook.
James has posted a memo to his fans via his social media for fans letting them know about the new June release. You can read the memo below:
I hope you are enjoying the songs we’ve released so far from my upcoming album, Solid. I want you to know how much your continuing support means to me and my wife Lily as we sequester here at home. We are healthy and doing well, and hope you are too.
The “shelter at home” initiatives across the country have made it impossible to get CDs made, shipped to warehouses and eventually to you. Because Amazon is concentrating on sending all of us the essential items we need, they’re not bringing in non-essential goods, like new records, to their warehouses. And unfortunately, for now, the warehouse for my online store in Illinois is also closed.
I’m so sorry to tell you this news: I am being advised that we must push back the release of Solid to June 12th.
The good news is I will continue to share music with you during my Facebook Live events. Hope you’ll be there when I will be releasing two more tracks over the next handful of weeks.
I can’t wait to see you all out on the road when we get to the other side of this.
We currently have the album in hand and will be giving our full review closer to the release date and one thing we can say is that it is worth the wait.
