There are few things that get us more excited that hearing about upcoming albums from our favorite soul music stars. So sharing with SoulTrackers what’s coming up in 2022 is a pure labor of love. Here is our semi-annual listing of Upcoming Albums and EPs from some of our most popular SoulTracks artists.

Longtime Favorites: When it comes to acts that have been at the forefront for decades, they don’t get much bigger than The Temptations. And Otis Williams and the gang return on January 28 with Temptations 60, celebrating a six decade legacy as perhaps the greatest R&B vocal group of all-time. But other classic soul stars are releasing new music soon, including multi-SoulTracks Award winning vocalist Maysa, whose Music For Your Soul arrives in Spring, and Joss Stone, with February's Never Forget My Love. Also look for a plethora of classic soul releases coming on CD, digital and vinyl, including a 50th Anniversary set of Marvin Gaye’s classic What’s Going On, as well as the vinyl version of the highly anticipated orchestral reimagining of the biggest hits of Detroit with Motown: A Symphony of Soul.

The Jazzier side of soul is busy in 2022, led by recent SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Award winner Jeff Bradshaw. And his project will be joined by much anticipated projects from Lindsey Webster, Rick Braun, Wade C. Long, Jeanne Ricks and Nicholas Payton.

Indie Soul Stars are busier than ever, and some of the biggest are returning in 2022. Look for new releases from Mamas Gun, Ascendant, Sugaray Rayford, Binky Womack, JD’s Time Machine, Beth, James “Biscuit” Rouse, Whitney McClain, The Sully Band and Bludazz.

And finally, we love seeing the next generation of rising stars do their thing, and so we’ll be excitedly waiting for releases fromSoulTracks Readers’ Choice Award winner Acantha Lang, Maverick Sabre, Amber Mark and the ethereal soul of Moonchild.

All in all, 2022 looks like another winning year for music. Below is our more detailed list of upcoming album releases. Do you know of others? Hit us up using the “Contact Us” button below.
