Narada Michael Walden was one of the biggest producers of the 80s, a hitmaker for artists ranging from Aretha Franklin to Whitney Houston.  He is a Grammy winner and a production legend.

He was also a star artist in his own right duringthe 70s and 80s. And after a long hiatus, Narada will be returning on October 23 with the new album, Evolution.  The forthcoming album represents a change of direction for Narada, one that brings him back to his roots in Dance and Club Music, Funk and Soul. This first single and full-length album will be released on Narada’s own imprint, Tarpan Records. Evolution is inspired by the “retro” sound that is so prevalent on the radio and in clubs today.
