War To Release First Album In Over 15 Years

(UMe) War's first album in more than 15 years, titled War.Com, will be released by UMe early next year.

The Southern California natives are best known for their blend of funk, rock, latin, blues, reggae, and soul, and their smash hits "Low Rider," "Spill The Wine," "The Cisco Kid" and "Why Can't We Be Friends?" which have all been placed in many television shows, movies and commercials, as well as sampled time and time again.

Their new album features piano virtuoso and founding member Lonnie Jordan's strong and signature vocals, genre-crossing instrumentation and a few collaborations that bridge the gap between the '70s and today. Top producer and two-time Grammyฎ award-winner and lyricist Malik Yusef, who is best known for his work with Elton John, Kanye West and John Legend, is co-producing and co-writing with Lonnie as well WAR's multi-platinum-selling producer, Jerry Goldstein. WAR, Yusef and producer Jerry Goldstein are working diligently to maintain the integrity of WAR's sound that resulted in more than 50 million album sales worldwide while expanding their sound to include a new generation of young fans. DJ's all over the world are awaiting the first single, "Bounce."

Comments Malik Yusef, "I am pleased to be able to take what we do with Kanye West and apply it to the band WAR. Endeavors like this rarely live up to expectation, but I am excited and anxious to report that this one is exceeding all expectations. Being that some of the songs I have co-produced and collaborated on are on the radio currently, gives me a good gauge on what the mainstream is looking for while holding true to my underground roots and respecting WAR's existing fan base."

Added WAR vocalist Lonnie Jordan, "Working together has definitely been a wonderful experience because of the fact that we are branching out to the new world today and blending the sound of our new music into what I call a beautiful, tasty, sweet mixed salad bowl of music from a wide variety of different genres."
