After more than a decade away, Diana Ross is returning with a new album. The American superstar, 77, wrote and recorded Thank You – her 25th album – at home during the coronavirus pandemic, and it will be released on 10 September. This follows the recent release of the disco-tinged title track, which got fans excited for a new Diana era. It will be her first new studio album in 15 years, since 2006’s I Love You, and 21 years since her last record of original material, 1999’s Every Day Is A New Day.
She said, “This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love. I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time.” She added, “I dedicate this songbook of love to all of you, the listeners.
As you hear my voice, you hear my heart.” The LP features 13 original songs “of happiness, appreciation and joy”.
Disco queen Diana, who rose to fame as the lead singer of The Supremes in the ’60s, will tour the UK in 2022. She’s the Guinness World Records’ most successful female artist of all time, with 43 number-one singles worldwide, including I’m Coming Out, Love Hangover, Baby Love and Upside
