Usher announces new LP Hard II Love
Usher has announced his new album 'Hard II Love'.
The 37-year-old R&B superstar will release his follow-up to 2012's 'Looking 4 Myself' on September 16 and those who pre-order the record will receive two brand new tracks instantly.
Those are 'Missin U' and 'Champions' from the 'Love In This Club' hitmaker's new movie 'Hands of Stone', in which he stars as real-life boxer Sugar Ray Leonard in a biopic about ring legend Robert Duran.
Fans of the Grammy-winning actor-and-singer will also get a download of his current hit singles 'No Limit' feat. Young Thug and 'Crash'.
Usher's eighth studio album previously had the working title of 'Flawed'.
Back in September Usher revealed he'd been working with Martin Garrix and teased that he's done a lot of collaborative work with various people.
He previously said: "New record is coming great. I've been working on some new music obviously. I've been doing some collaborations. I just brought out Martin Garrix, one of the collaborations that I've had. The album will hopefully be out very soon."
And Usher also said that travelling has been a major influence on the record.
He added: "Please know that every time I travel to a different place, I'm influence by what I am dealing with or what I am looking at, so a song will probably come from this experience."
A full tracklist is yet to be unveiled.
