First Listen: Babyface returns as “Tender” as ever on “We’ve Got Love”


(Aug. 13, 2015 – New York, NY)  The legacy of 11-time Grammy Award®-winning multi-platinum icon Kenny ‘Babyface’ Edmonds continues with the release of “We’ve Got Love,” the first single from his forthcoming Def Jam Recordings album RETURN OF THE TENDER LOVER.

“We’ve Got Love,” the album’s first single, transcends romantic love to bring a global message of love and connectedness that we all have in our hearts. Babyface is currently touring through October in the U.S. and South Africa and will continue to tour in support of the upcoming new album.

“I have been blessed to experience a lot of love in my life,” commented Babyface.  “It is the greatest gift in life and I feel blessed to share that universal message through my music.”

RETURN OF THE TENDER LOVER is the 10th studio album by the poignant tunesmith, prolific hit maker/producer, superstar recording artist, and revolutionary label owner Babyface.  The album is filled with eight beautiful new original tracks of unapologetic R&B, intended to bring feel-good grooves back to music.  Babyface plays on every track on the album including, although not limited to, his amazing and widely-praised guitar work.

RETURN OF THE TENDER LOVER’s title commemorates and pays homage to Babyface’s breakthrough album of 1989, the RIAA triple-platinum Tender Lover.  His second studio LP, it spun off a quartet of career-defining solo R&B/pop cross­over hits, “It’s No Crime” (#1), “Tender Love” (#1), “Whip Appeal” (#2), and “My Kinda Girl” (#3).
