New album – Coming soon

If you think we’ve been a little quiet over the last few months, it’s for very good reason. Seal has been in the studio writing and recording his new studio album of original material, and from what we’ve heard, there’s real magic happening!

However before the album comes out, there’s just a little time to squeeze in a short tour of Europe this summer.

    In 91′,I WAS JAMMIN TO THE NEW NWA RECORD.RIGHT AFTER PLAYING THAT RECORD I RELUCTANTLY TURNED ON THE RADIO WHEN A NEW SONG AIRED”CRAZY”.I WAS BLOWN AWAY ESPECIALLY SINCE AT THAT TIME I MAINLY LISTENED TO RAP.FOUR YEARS LATER(95)I WAS COMING HOME FOLLOWING MY COUSINS WAKE AND I PLAYED THE DEBUT ALBUM.VIOLET WAS A SONG ABOUT BREAKING UP,BUT I LOOKED AT IT AS AN ENDING AND THAT SONG BECAME SPRITUAL TO ME AND EVER SINCE I HAVE BEEN A SUPPORTER AND LISTENER OF YOUR MUSIC.YOU HAVE A GIFT FOR EXPRESSION EITHER THRU PAIN OR HAPPINESS.

    Seal I have been a fan since 1991 when I heard crazy at a Cosmetologist Convention in Hershey, Pa. I was on the seat dancing and immediately went out to buy the CD. I saw you in concert in Atlantic City a few years ago. Your music is so inspiring, you write lyrics that give me goosebumps. I do think you wear your heart on your sleeve while writing and singing. You capture human emotions more than any other artist out there. Please give your fans what they want..another album with Trevor Horn producing. I’m a dedicated loyal fan and hope to see you perform again.

    Hi Seal, me and my entire Family (my wife and our two little princess of 4 & 7 years old) we are so fans to you, since your first album, even the last. Each one song has sounded in our cars every day, for years.

    I live actually in Chile (Southamerica), but I went to Spain on july (two weeks ago)…And I went to Mantova (Italy), specially for your concert there. I was on first line, with my hands on your scenario, like in your concert in Chile the last year. That show in Mantova was incredible!!!, thanks a lot men for a new great moments.

    Finally I want tell you a very “cool” history: My more little girl (Martina, 4) she know complete lyrics of your songs (and their native language is Spanish, like me). We hope you come back to Chile (for ski on our great mountains, I Know you like ski). And sincerily, “my house is your house”. Take care. See you in the next tour!. You are the best!

  6. jon-eric

    HI SEAL…huge fan of yours…but i hope u go back to the human being/crazy beat..not so much the technopop of “amazing ” …i play the HELL out of human being and future love paradise …god bless you seal..you are a musical godsend !!

  7. Sylvie

    Hi! SEAL! Juste une petite note d’encouragement pour la poursuite de ta magnifique tournée Européenne. Tu passes à Cognac et je ne pourrai pas assister à ton concert… J’y serai en pensée !!! De toutes façons, j’attends avec impatience de découvrir l’album “6″ en septembre, nul doute qu’il sera de grande qualité! Je te dis à bientôt encore et encore en France? Et à Bordeaux surtout?!!! LOVE

  8. Zara

    I know am ur #1 Nigerian fan, (ur sista) when will ur tour bring u home to Naija. looking foward to seeing u in Nigeria. Very excited about ur new album cant wait to hear, Just keep it REAL!

  9. Justin Porter

    Seal,
    I found your music late in your career, but God knows that I have been doing a lot of catching up. I sing a little and I find your passion and soul connection to my ineffable pain and joy makes you my brother in song. My favorite is the acoustic piano version of Violet, that songs stops all my incessant thinking and focuses my heart and literally makes me cry everytime I hear it. You have a song for every asect of the human experience and that is what I love about your writing. Any way, I could go on and on, but please bring your show to the Dallas area soon.

  10. Steve

    Please release a high resolution 5.1 mix of the new album.
    The 5.1 mixes that WB did of Seal I, Greatest Hits, etc., are simply stunning. PLease don’t limit us with the same tired 16-bit/44.1kHz CD format. Your music is better than that.

    How about a Blu-ray 5.1 release? Tom Petty did it for his new album, it’s so much more pleasing on the ears.

  11. Alick MAere

    This is good news! I can’t wait for the album! ! would like to echo what Fabian said, seal is best known for origial. Soul though not that bad was not that good because of the cover songs. Seal did not have more creativity to show because songs were already done by some people. This album 6 i beleive will continue from Sea 4. Lets all wait and listen to this gifted singer. SEAL STICK TO THE ORIGINALZ THAT IS WHAT U R MADE OF! kEEP IT UP!

  12. james bedu graham

    YO SEAL,GUTEN ABEND FROM ACCRA GHANA WEST AFRICA.I GOT TO KNOW YOUR MUSIC THROUGH THE GREAT SOUNDRTACK THIS COULD BE HEAVEN AN D FLY LIKE AN EAGLE.

    SYSTEM WAS A GREAT MIDDLE ALBUM HONOURING YOUR BACKGROUND WITH ELECTRONIC SOUNDS AS KILLER WAS A GREAT INTRO.I AM A YOUNG TECHNICIAN AGED 28,SO EVEN THOUGH I AM YOUNGER THAN YOUR AGE.YOUR MUSIC HAS REALLY INSPIRED ME IN MY OWN PERSONAL MUSICAL JOURNEY.

    IN MY OPINION SEAL IV AND SYSTEM STAND OUT AS YOUR BEST EVER WORK.WAITING FOR YOU BLEW MY YOUNG MIND ENTIRELY.I DREAM OF BECOMING A GREAT ARTISTE LIKE YOU.

    YOUR EXPRESSION OF ENGLISH IS UNIQUE AS THAT OF YOUR VOICE AND YOUR BACK UP CREW IS EXTREMELY PROFESSIONAL.AS THEY SAY IN FRENCH BON COURAGE ET ALLEZ DE L’AVANT.

    GREETINGS TO YOUR KIND WIFE HEIDI KLUM AND CHILDREN AND TO SUMMARIZE IN GERMAN AUFWIEDERSEN AND DANKE FOR THE SOULFUL MUSIC OVER THE YEARS.

    PS:I SENT YOU A PERSONAL POSTAL MAIL ADDRESSES IN MY OWN NAME JAMES BEDU GRAHAM YOU WILL READ IT.

  13. KK

    Every part of my love life is wrapped around a Seal song…*sigh*. Bring it on, more Future Love Paradise. Your talent is amazing, your gift heavenly! Thank you for sharing your vision with the world. Love love love you!

    • Vicky "Iggystar" Bagley

      Sigh…

      I know exactly what you mean. His music is like a lifelong friend that has seen me through my late teens, all through my 20′s, 30′s and going into my 40′s. Through life, loves, tragedies and happiness. I still listen to Seal 1 as much as the rest (especially Violet, which in rotation forever)

      I’m so looking foward to the new album with original material and hope that Seal can make an appearance near Detroit for a tour (crosses fingers).

  14. Dianne Houts

    I hope you (Seal) wear your white pants like you did on the American Idol show for your new CD cover. You looked great and have very strong looking legs. I’m not flirting just adding my two cents worth. =)
    I’m looking forward to your new CD. I’ll be in line if need be. Thank you Seal for wonderful singing and songs. I hope you come to America soon!
    God Bless you and your wondeful family.

  15. Tracey D

    If it’s anything like “System”, we’re in for a real treat!!! Saw him in concert in 2009 and my boyfriend had to drag me out of there.

    @Jason that was a good point with the Seal “Soul” album, however, he still sounded “Amazing”, get it??

  16. JasonH

    Great news regarding the new album. I agree with many of the comments above, hoping the new album is a mixture of classic SEAL and none of the Soul bandwagon that was around in 2008 – should have left that stuff for those with weaker voices; the likes of Robbie Williams.
    Don’t forget your loyal fans in Blighty – when’s the next UK tour?

  17. Kenneth L.

    September, huh, great I can’t wait!
    I hope it’s more of the Seal I’ve known and grown to love( no System…..more of the real Seal, the great stuff that comes from the soul; acoustic, the man and the band, the old Seal, y’all know. Back to the roots.
    I believe in you, baby! Do what you do and I’ll see you on tour somewhere soon. Beautiful family.
    I love you, Brah. I love your music. May God bless you and Keep you all.
    Thanks for all the beautiful music and the memories it creates.

  18. Michael_Australia-Bali

    Hi Seal and everyone :D
    I am Australian, live in Bali and will be heading to Florence, Italy, at the end of September for a couple of weeks……..I am taking my mum to see Florence and also to visit some friends…but what I really want to do is also take her to a Seal concert and I am hoping that there will be some tour dates/venues in Europe somewhere at that time with the release of the new album…….does anyone have any idea about this ??
    Seal……….your music and what you put into it is nothing short of “Sensational” !! Absolutely love it and I listen to Disc 1 of Seal Hits every day before and after I go surfing on the Island of the Gods – actually ….how about a concert in Bali ?? ………………Cheers :)

  19. Freddy_Seal

    Hi Seal!! I’m italian fan.. I love your music and i going to your concert start July 17 in Mantova!!! Comeback with new album!!! SEAL The Best

  20. Alex

    DEAR Seal – can’t wait to hear new Music – love your Music since 90s – will share your news !
    I went to USA I hate that in US people know “Kiss from a Rose” only – crazy US people should know MORE about YOU and your Amazing voice/music. GOOD LUCK

  21. Lluïsa

    I’ve just learned Seal will be in Barcelona at the end of July! Great! I’ll buy my ticket as soon as I send this message.
    I can’t wait to see you here!

  22. ben witherington

    Dear Seal:

    I am wondering if you would consider a really adventurous musical collaboration or even joint tour with other artists who also have great voices, and sing in various of the same genre as you do. For example, it would be truly fantastic to hear a Seal and Sade album or a Seal and Gino Vanelli album, or all three. I can only imagine what a tour of you three together would do— it would blow the roof off of the venues, and stretch the limits of soulful music in wonderful new directions. Think about it.

  23. Phablo Marcelle

    I was very happy to know that a new album is underway. I love the Seal … since the time of Adamski. An EP with new mixes would be wonderful or maybe a triple box only for new mixes for Christmas. I wonder if it is possible to leave the Blu-ray Tour of the Amazing album. The shows of that period were not released and Amazing is a wonderful album. And of course a Blu-Ray with all the clips of the Seal, and Seal bonus presentations on TV. Hugs from Brazil.

  24. Cary Campria

    Can’t wait for the new CD! Love, love love!

  25. VL

    P.S. SEAL – We’ve (Seattle) have missed you – the last time you were here was in November 2006; and there we were (my husband and I), singing and dancing with you in front of the stage, with you, Chris and Eric. Please bring yourself, and them, back to us during your next US tour – We’ll be there!

  26. VL

    Seal – We’re so very excited about your newest CD; it’s been a long time we’ve been awaiting for your originals. Is this coming to us through the incomparable genius of you and Trevor, together again?

  27. katia maurice

  28. Marcos Leonel

    Seal, meu grande sonho de musica é poder ver um show seu aqui no Brasil. Da última vez que você esteve aqui quase morri por saber e não poder ir. Você sabe, o Brasil é muito grande, com grandes distâncias e eu não tinha money para ir vê-lo. Mas eu espero e um dia vai dar certo! Amo o seu trabalho, amo a sua música! Um grande abraço e beijos na família linda!

  29. Deborah

    Please bring your new album tour down to New Zealand, we’d love to se and hear you.

  30. Khamel

    I can’t wait for new music from Seal! I do have to ask – any chance of stuff from Toegetherland ever seeing the light of day? I was privileged to have heard “Love is better” and “Breathe” and found them both to be urgent, majestic tracks. They’re still reverberating in my eardrums after all these years!

  31. Sealfans

  33. Mr.Lovely!224

    I was at your last concert in Miami, Fl., I bought the tickets thinking it was for IV, but it was your Soul tour, never the less it was the GREATEST concert that I have EVER been to! The performance was second to NONE. After 19yrs in the business, it was as if he was putting on his first show! That’s dedication to the fans, THANK YOU! I appreciated that you took the time to include some of your earlier work too. If anyone reading this has never been to a Seal concert you are missing out on the event of a lifetime…..I look forward to the new album and hopefully a North American Tour.

  34. Leslie Cunningham (Emmaus)

    I have enjoyed your music from the first album until now. Your collaboration with Trevor Horn is priceless. I’m looking forward to you coming to Richmond, Virginia again. I’m in a band that plays oringinal material (pop,R&B, Gospel, Jazz). we are looking forward to opening for you one day and hope that you are interested in hearing some of our material. If so, please e-mail me or contact me at (804) 307-1420. Until then, keep giving us the peace and love that this world so desperately needs…

  35. Raquel

    Well, I believe in Seal’s gifts, i just hope that he come to Brazil again…we miss you here.
    Listen Seal live is the best of everything….
    (Sorry about my english).

  36. deleonibus

    It’s true!!!
    MINA and SEAL. What a duet!!!!
    “You get me” is the single of the new Mina’s album.
    Seal is fantastic, as usual…and the voice of Mina ( 70 years old) amazing…
    paola

  37. stefanoitaly

    Hey…
    In Italy Seakl in singing with our best singer MINA.
    you get me is the track.
    Really magic!

  38. fer

    Hi. Waiting for the new album. Who is the producer?. I hope that made a multichannel version. I have (I, II and IV, what happens with “human being”) and sounds incredible. Thanks for your music.

  39. jani westlake

    Saw your performance at Abbey Roday on Australian tv last night.
    Gorgeous sound, amazing performance. Very impressive.
    Peace, love, & joy to you in abundance.

  40. Gary

    Wow, September will arrive in no time at all. (If it gets released in that month). Take your time and make an album you’re proud of, and from the little bits of interview I have stumbled across, it sounds like you’re in a different headspace than previous outings, so could this have the vibes of the “Soul” album but instead of covering tunes, you’ll be giving the soul in you some creative exercise?

    It’s like waiting for a present to be posted by mail, so exciting. Thankyou for making the music that you do.

  41. Grace Phillips

    Seal and David Foster just did an awe-inspiring set at a benefit for United Friends of Children. When a Man, Secret, Knock on Wood. I liked your music before but now I love you! I hope the two of you can do that again for a larger audience – very funny chemistry between you. Wouldn’t hurt to have Craig Ferguson as the emcee!
    Thanks for that bunch of songs, it really was fantastic.

    • Grace Phillips

      whoops – it’s late. it was It’s a Man’s World! not When A man….and I was too busy being awed.

  42. Wolfgang

    Myself and many others are hoping that Seal’s next tour hits Vancouver, Canada. “it’s been a long time coming”. I loved the Soul album even if David Foster’s production/arranging was, as some critics have said, lacking a bit of life. Perhaps too much sequencing and not enough live players. Seal’s voice with those classics continuously brings tears to my eyes on each listen. Can’t wait for the new album and a Vancouver tour date.

  43. carlos

    I’ve listened yp the new single “you get me” with the amazing italian singer Mina! that’s wonderful! is it about to be published in seal’s new album too?

  44. Nathan

    Man, great news that new stuff is coming soon!!!! Made my night. Now we have to wait until September.

    How about throwing in Step Away or Breathe as a hidden/bonus single!

    Later dude

    (Still pride myself in the belief that I have listened to Deep Water more times than you have!)

  45. Marie-ChantaleLa

    Wishing true happiness to Seal in his pesonal and prof. life and making this my last comment as i was never a public forum person…will follow from far once in a while. Peace and Love to all …xxx

  46. Z

    I hope “6″ is like the 1st album. SEAL (the 1st album) is by far one of the greatest albums ever to come out.

  47. Berry

    Seal,

    Love your sound since the first album. I too prefer to hear your original material, in any event whatever you put out I’ll support it. Can’t wait to see you again in Philly. Live long and continue what you do. Peace to your band members as well.

  48. Leo

    Seal, you get better with every album…. Seal II was my favorite when it came out, but I have Seal IV as my favorite now..I wasn’t crazy about the Foster album.. it wasn’t Seal enough for my tastes. September…I can’t wait…

  49. Janet

    I really enjoyed the chat with the band last Monday. Thanks to State of Grace for setting it up. It was great to have some of our questions about the “6″ album answered, and I look forward to buying the new album. Peace, Janet

    • Doozie

      Hi Janet,
      I used to spend alot of time on the website back about 5 yeqrs ago..now I am out of the loop, not out of love with Seal, that would never happen, just out of the loop.
      Will you share some of the stuff you heard about “6″?
      Thanks
      Doozie
      (Sue)

      • Janet

        Hi Doozie, Mark and Gus were very gracious, and answered our questions in chat. They have 12 tracks lined up for the CD, but they did complete 13 or more. Nothing is final yet, and they may add another song. The song “You get me” may be on the 6 – Commitment CD. You could tell that the band members were really excited about the CD, and the upcoming gigs in July. It is so good to see you posting Doozie:O) I hope that you are doing good. Please join us in sealfans chat sometime. There is a time zone calculator on the chat page. (Sundays Time: 6 pm UK time). I popped Jeymes Samuel a note on Twitter and he may join us in chat sometime too. Here is State of Grace’s site: sealfans.co.uk Much love, Janet

  50. Josephine

    I am waiting for the new album. I just know it will be just as great and bring just as must joy as all the ones before. Hurry, hurry hurry…………………………………………….Is September the release date?

  51. Fabian

    So september will be the release date?,I really hope ’6′ will be a album with a mix of
    ‘SEAL 1991′ ‘SEAL 1995′ and ‘Human Being’ and a little of ‘System’
    But i also can’t wait to hear it,in my opnion ‘Soul’ wasn’t a good album,So SEAL
    don’t make a cover album again is my Tip,just make your own songs that’s where you are best in,one question:will there be a mix of up-tempo and slow music on ’6′ ?
    i hope so,greetings from Fabian.

    • JULIE

      SOUL WAS WONDERFUL… APPRECIATE THE CLASSICS AND THE FEELING HE PUTS INTO THEM.

    • Miranda

      Fabian you are right. I love to hear Seal’s voice but above all I love his lyrics. That is why Seal is my favorite artist. Can’t wait to hear him sing live again. Perfect!

  52. SealFans

    I have a feeling ’6′ is going to be one of if not the best Seal album to date!!! Mark my words!!
    September can’t come quicker!!
