All the original members of the Minneapolis funk band The Time have reunited under a different name to record together for first time in 21 years. Here is the official word:

Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jellybean Johnson, Jerome Benton and Monte Moir revitalize the classic Minneapolis sound on their first new album together in 21 years.

Condensate, due October 18th on SRR Records, features 14 brand new but instantly familiar tracks by the band formerly known as The Time. From their origins in the early '80s as Prince's first protιgιs led by the dynamic Morris Day, this seminal group continues to deliver groundbreaking funk-rock dance grooves as only they can. Today the Original 7ven remain a fascinating and outrageous musical congregation.

Now, for the first time since the '90s, all the original members of the band formerly known as The Time have reunited in the studio as The Original 7ven to deliver an authentic and unapologetically funky album of instant classics! Condensate has all the cool and swagger of earlier years and asserts funk-tastic confidence perfectly suited for today's audience. Endlessly entertaining, this new collection of 14 timeless grooves puts the "fun" back in funk!

The album name Condensate is taken from Morris Day's tongue-in-cheek comment, "I don't sweat, I condensate."

"The studio was alive when we recorded. The energy and the fever, the skill and the fun – the fun – took Condensate to a whole new level."

School's in! The Original 7vens's music is fresh and wildly infectious," says Mike Jason, SRR Records Senior Vice President, Retail, "and all I can say is it was worth the wait!"
