Motown Legend Smokey Robinson Teases New Solo Album 'Gasms,' Drops First Single

Smokey Robinson's new album “Gasms” will be released on April 28.
On Friday, Motown legend Smokey Robinson teased his first new album release since 2017's "Christmas Everyday" — which included three original songs by the artist mixed in with seven seasonal standards.

"My New Music is OUT NOW!!!" wrote Robinson on his official Instagram account. "The New Single
“If We Don’t Have Each Other” is available on all platforms… and my New album ‘GASMS’ will be available April 28, 2023."

The founder and front man of one of the seminal R&B labels' first vocal supergroups — the Miracles — Robinson has also enjoyed a lengthy solo career. He was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1987.

“Gasms” features nine new songs produced and written by Robinson. It is his most ambitious musical undertaking since the release of “Smokey & Friends” in 2014.

The album of duets featured an all-star lineup of his contemporaries, including Elton John, Steven Tyler, Sheryl Crow and Mary J. Blige. It peaked at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B Albums chart and No. 12 on the Billboard 200, making it the second most successful effort of his solo career.

Earlier this year it was announced that Robinson will be honored alongside Motown founder and fellow musician Berry Gordy as the 2023 “Persons Of The Year” at the Recording Academy’s annual MusiCares event on Feb. 3 in Los Angeles.
