Music World/Columbia Set To Release “Unexpected” Album From Michelle Williams
New York, NY -- Music World/Columbia Records will release Unexpected, the long-awaited new full-length solo album from music superstar Michelle Williams, on Tuesday, August 12.
With the aptly-titled Unexpected, her third solo album and first since 2004's Do You Know, Michelle Williams has moved away from the gospel flavor characterizing her debut and sophomore releases and created a bold new collection of contemporary pop/dance classics.
Executive produced by Mathew Knowles for Music World Productions and Michelle Williams, Unexpected finds Michelle collaborating with some of today's hottest producers including Jim Jonsin (Jamie Foxx featuring Ludacris, Sean Paul, Danity Kane, Trina featuring Kelly Rowland, Pretty Ricky, Lil Wayne featuring Static Major, Bow Wow and Omarion); Rico Love (Usher, Omarion, Natasha Bedingfield, Tiffany Evans featuring Bow Wow); Wayne Wilkins (Natasha Bedingfield, Kylie Minogue, Pink, No Doubt); Andrew Frampton (Natasha Bedingfield, Kylie Minogue); StarGate and more.
"We Break The Dawn," the first single from Unexpected, is produced by Wayne Wilkins and Andrew Frampton, who co-wrote the track with the singer/songwriter Solange Knowles. (The sister of Beyoncé Knowles, Michelle's ensemble-mate and musical colleague in Destiny's Child, Solange has written songs for Beyoncé, Destiny's Child, Kelly Rowland and Trinitee 5:7.)
Other stand-out tracks on Unexpected include the irresistible "Stop This Car," produced by StarGate, the Norwegian production team behind #1 hits for Ne-Yo and Rihanna as well as Beyoncé's "Irreplaceable," the biggest song of the year on the Hot 100 Billboard Year End Chart 2007.
