Muze PNote Soul veterans and disco icons Labelle can take pride in an illustrious back catalogue that embraces a myriad of genres and includes contributions to some of the greatest soul recordings of all time. As Patti Labelle & the Blue Belles they contributed backing vocals to many of the most memorable soul singles of the `60s, while the following decade saw them releasing a series of albums that blended gospel-infused soul with the then-emergent beat of disco. This string of successes culminated with 1974's Allen Toussaint-produced NIGHTBIRDS, an album that spawned the monstrous hit single "Lady Marmalade," and made the trio internationally renowned stars.
Muze PNote The Lenny Kravitz- and Gamble & Huff-produced BACK TO NOW, Labelle's first full-length effort since 1976's CHAMELEON, features assured forays into every style that the trio have mastered over the course of their career. "Candlelight" and "Superlover" evoke the slow-burning southern soul of the group's early days, while "How Long" and "Roll Out" update the lush disco of NIGHTBIRDS for modern dance floors.
