Kool & The Gang have announced a new studio album in celebration of their 60th anniversary.
The legendary funk and soul band will release their 34th studio album, People Just Wanna Have Fun, on July 14.
The 15-track project is helmed by founding members bassist Robert “Kool” Bell and keyboardist-drummer George “Funky” Brown.
Bell said in a statement, “You’ve got the funk, you’ve got the jazzier tracks, we have a few ballads on there. Then there are songs that cross over to a pop sort of thing. We go from the ’70s, the ’80s, right into now. It’s old school, it’s new school – we kinda captured it all here. With all our music over the years, people have had fun. So I’d say this album just about sums it all up.”
Brown added, “It’s all done live. Nothing was flown in. We made sure we had the ultraviolet lights and the sprays and the masks. Nobody got sick. We kept the number of people in the studio way down.”
