West News Wire: Smokey Robinson’s latest album hasn’t been released in almost ten years, but there will soon be new music from the King of Motown.

Robinson, the musical genius behind hits like “My Girl” and “The Way You Do the Things You Do,” announced Friday that the nine-track album “Gasms” would be released on April 28.

Robinson produced and wrote the brand-new tracks on “Gasms.” “Smokey & Friends,” the ninth collaboration album by the former vice president of Motown Records, featured artists like Elton John, John Legend, Steven Tyler, and Mary J. Blige.

The first track from the new album, “If We Don’t Have Each Other,” is already obtainable via streaming platforms.

Robinson is a legendary music producer, songwriter, record label executive and solo musician who’s penned over 4,000 songs and been inducted into the the Rock ‘n’ Roll and Songwriters’ halls of fame.

The musician has worked with other historic Motown artists like the Temptations, Mary Wells, Brenda Holloway and Marvin Gaye.

Robinson will soon be honored alongside fellow Motown musician Berry Gordy as the 2023 “Persons Of The Year” at the Recording Academy’s annual MusiCares event on Feb. 3 in Los Angeles.
