from SEAL 6: COMMITMENT

written by Seal & Gus Isidore

“I asked David [Foster] to produce Commitment because, quite simply, he’s the most incredible person I’ve worked with in the studio for a very long time. He’s one of a kind. I don’t think there’s an arranger and producer anywhere on the planet who can do what he does.”

from  I CAN’T STAND THE RAIN/IN THE MIDNIGHT HOUR (single)
written by Steve Cropper & Wilson Pickett, Jr.

Produced by David Foster and co-produced by Jochem van der Saag, Seal’s 2008 “Soul” was a collection of contemporized covers of r&b classics and became a top seller in several countries worldwide. “Soul” was eventually certified gold in the US, platinum in the UK and diamond in France. The album was introduced to international audiences by the popular cover of Sam Cooke’s hit, “A Change Is Gonna Come” that ignited great interest in this new release. In the months that followed, several other singles from that cd made their appearances in the music charts of many different countries.

from  SOUL 2

written by Leon Huff, Gene Mcfadden & John Whitehead

November 2011 saw the release of  Seal’s new album entitled “Soul 2.” It seemed like an obvious choice after the huge success of its 2008 predecessor, “Soul” and the relative disappointment of “Commitment” in 2010. Both “Soul” and “Commitment” were perfectly produced by David Foster but the first included great covers of the most famous soul evergreens of the sixties and the seventies while the second was mostly made of intimate new songs co-written by the UK superstar. “Soul 2” presented another batch of soul classics but this time around the focus was more on the seventies.
