"... a feel-good project built around timeless romance and live instrumentation."
- Billboard

Return Of The Tender Lover is the first solo album from Babyface in seven years and serves as a tribute to his breakthrough 1989 release, the triple-platinum Tender Lover. The 11-time Grammy winner channels the magic of his storied career and plays multiple instruments on this collection of nine original songs that Babyface describes as "unapologetic R&B." The album features guest appearances from El DeBarge and After 7, comprising his brothers Melvin and Kevon Edmonds.

"This is a left turn for me, not a traditional Babyface record. After the reaction to my project with Toni (Braxton), I was ready to go deeper into doing whatever I wanted to do instead of trying to make today’s R&B. My songs have always been more structured rather than grooves to a melody. The latter is something I picked up while on the road with Charlie Wilson and Frankie Beverly. I saw and studied how their feel-good onstage is about getting people to feel the music right with you. That’s the kind of groove I wanted to bring to this process."

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
