ERIC BENÉT Has a New Album Coming Soon and Teases New Single Sunshine

eric-benet-sunshine4x GRAMMY®-Nominated R&B singer, ERIC BENÉT, will release his self-titled, eighth studio album, eric benét, in North America on October 7, 2016. The 13-track album was recorded and produced in Los Angeles and includes a remix of the first single, “SUNSHINE.” The remix, which is streaming exclusively on RAP-UP.COM today, sees Eric reuniting with R&B sensation, Tamia, who was also featured on Eric’s #1 hit, “Spend My Life With You.” Fans can pre-order eric benét starting tomorrow, Friday, September 9, and when they do, they will receive the remix as an instant grat-track.

“SUNSHINE,” Eric’s hot summer single, was released on May 13, and has been climbing the radio charts since, reaching TOP 5 at Urban/AC Radio this week. “SUNSHINE” also earned accolades by topping Mediabase and Radio & Records ‘Most Added’ lists for three consecutive weeks after its release. In April, Billboard gave fans a sneak peak of the track, saying the song has a “feel-good groove.” When asked about the single, Eric said, “‘Sunshine’ is a reflective memory about a relationship that has lost its spark, with a longing for how love-filled and joyous their lives used to be. The song will hopefully inspire people to actively create and savor the joy and sunshine in every one of their relationships.”

Eric will be performing songs from his new album, eric benét, when he hits the road with Anthony Hamilton and Lalah Hathaway this fall. Hamilton’s “What I’m Feelin'” tour kicks off on October 6 in Durham and will span the east coast, and will hit D.C., Baltimore, Detroit, Nashville, New Orleans and more, before wrapping in Richmond on October 30. All tour dates are listed below, and tickets are available at ticketmaster.com.
