Multi-platinum selling R&B singer/songwriter/producer Joe will release his new album Double Back: Evolution of R&B on July 2, 2013.

Double Back: Evolution of R&B will be available in 3 versions of the CD. The standard will carry 12 tracks, Target’s version will have 2 bonus tracks and Best Buy will tout a remix of “I’d Rather Have A Love” featuring rapper Fat Joe. More than half of the album was written, produced and or arranged by the soulful crooner himself. Joe also enlisted superstar producers Stargate (Ne-Yo, Beyonce) and DOA (Tyrese, Wale) to collaborate on the new album. Double Back: Evolution of R&B will debut via the newly formed Massenburg Media, helmed by industry heavyweight Kedar Massenburg.

Joe audio snippets

In a recent interview with Joe shared the one thing he wants to bring back to R&B is "class."  In describing the meaning behind the album's title and the style of the project, Joe states that this was "an ode' to classic R&B.

"I doubled back to when music was heard with live horns, live strings, and live drums, to a time when soul music was very stylish and elegant."

I’d Rather Have A Love” is available now for download at iTunes.
