Milk & Honey will be the fourth studio album from Bay Area vocalist Goapele after a four-year-long hiatus and a three-year stint at Columbia/SME Records.[1]

Contents

Background

The first single, the eponymous title track, was leaked on the Internet July 10th, 2009, while the video directed by David Telles went into rotation on August 4th, 2009.[2] It offers a more suggestive and seductive vibe then what fans may be accustomed to from the singer. Goapele is known to incorporate messages of politics, love, romance, and struggle into her music.

Recording

Milk & Honey is being recorded at the Zoo in Downtown Oakland, California, home of Goapele’s Skylight Studios. This project will be another personal album with several love songs as well as up-tempo joints. Production-wise, tracks with Bedrock, Kanye West, Dan Electric, Mike Tiger, Bobby Ozuna (Raphael Saadiq, John Mayer, Erykah Badu), Malay (John Legend, Mary J. Blige), Jeff Bhasker (The Game, Kanye West, Ludacris, T.I), and other musicians are confirmed.

Concept

On this album she reveals a more confident, open, and sensual side. Goapele says she is liberating herself a little more and claims while there was something very empowering about appearing in a T-shirt without make-up on the cover of her first internationally distributed album, Even Closer, there is something equally empowering about shedding her fears of music-industry exploitation and strutting confidently into more brazen territory. She says, “Now if I want to dress sexy, I can, and if I want to be more blunt, I can. I just want to do what feels good.”[3]
