R&B singer, songwriter, and producer Kevin Ross, who also happens to be, in my opinion, a breath of fresh air in mainstream music has excited the music world with his return to music after a 2-year hiatus. Kevin is not only back with new music but music released through his newly formed label imprint, Art Society Music Group. His new single Thing Called Love is a gut-wrenching, funk-inspired tale that expresses the inadequacies a man feels while in a relationship with a woman.
“Thing Called Love is based on a relationship I was in that I didn’t feel worthy of. I felt like she had it all together and I had a lot more to learn about myself,” Ross explains. “Instead of me breaking it off, I just let it self destruct. You live, you learn, and do better. Sonically, I’ve always been a fan of 70’s music. I wanted to give some nostalgic feels on this record that could be stretched across all ages.”
Earlier this year, Ross announced his departure from his long-time label home, Motown Records, and the formation of his independent label Art Society Music Group. Following his departure, he secured a multi-year distribution partnership with independent music powerhouse, EMPIRE. Thing Called Love is Ross’ first offering from his highly-anticipated sophomore album Audacity, which is scheduled for release by the end of 2019.
Thing Called Love, the new single from Kevin Ross is available on all streaming platforms today.
