Product Overview

Commitment finds the London-born, three-time Grammy Award winner re-teaming with renowned music maestro David Foster, who also produced 2008's Soul, Seal's stunning covers collection of soul classics.

While showcasing Seal's one-of-a-kind husky baritone, ear for unforgettable melodies, and unique lyrical point of view, songs such as "Secret," "The Weight of My Mistakes," "Best of Me," and "If I'm Any Closer," delve into the emotions surrounding love, family, and commitment, hence the title. "Everything about my life is fully committed," he says. "I've never felt more focused on the matter at hand: My wife, my children, the family in general, my own well-being, and of course music and my career. Each one of these songs has personal meaning for me. I dug very deep and all I can hope for is that the music strikes a chord with people."

Three-time Grammy Award-winner Seal re-teams with producer/arranger/songwriter David Foster for Seal 6: Commitment, the singer's first album of all-new material since 2007's System. While that album was influenced by dance-pop, love and family are the inspiration for this album's title, so expect a more "mature" sound. As the string-laden lead single "Secret" displays, the mood here is right in line with the romance and passion found on his 2008 all-covers effort, Soul.
Professional Reviews
Billboard (p.60) - "Taking subtle command over rich orchestrations that might overshadow another singer, Seal deftly showcases his still-formidable skills as a writer and vocalist."
