“Randy Jackson is a longtime friend, a great musician and an amazing, experienced record producer,” said Robinson. “I’m honored and very happy to be working with him. He’s my brother.”
The album will feature a collection of songs written by Robinson for both his solo career and his group The Miracles, as well as for other artists like Marvin Gaye and The Temptations. While Robinson’s duet partners are yet to be revealed, the album will include both “contemporary and classic artists.”
“It’s my utmost pleasure to produce this amazing duets record with the legend Smokey Robinson,” Jackson said. “He is one of the most incredible songwriters of all time. It’s going to be hot!”
Robinson’s duets album is scheduled for release this fall.
