This week, veteran R&B group Mint Condition released their new studio album, entitled 7, led by it’s first single is “Caught My Eye.”
It’s the group’s first new effort in three years, offering a solid set of ballads and up-tempo tracks. Although the album is filled with their classic signature sound, there are on surprises on it.
Mint Condition previously stated that this new album touches on all things in life and that it’s about finding truth in music. “The material on the new CD is inspired by all walks of life. Some of it is narrative — things that actually happened or are happening right now. Some things are fantasy,” the band recently shared with Singersroom.com.
“But all the things that people feel on the daily is where we always try to go – hopes, dreams, fears, accomplishments and failures…but always we try and find truth in the music and lyric, even if it is fiction.”
The group, who have a history together dating back more than 20 years, dug deep to find songs that people could relate to, specifically a recent trip to Iraq.
The trip to the Middle East, in which they entertained n U.S. troops, had a major impact on the band members. Spending the night in the barracks with the soldiers was an experience none of them will soon forget. It put their comfortable life at home in perspective and influenced some of the songwriting during this project.
