    Smokey Robinson returns on "If We Don't Have Each Other"

    Info from SoulTracks.com-
    If there is a Mount Rushmore of soul music greats, the legendary Smokey Robinson is certainly on it. As part of the Miracles, as a solo artist, and as one of the great songwriters of the past century, Mr. Robinson is one of those stars who is identified around the world with just his first name.
    It has been nearly a decade since we had brand new solo music from Smokey, but the 82 year old star returns today with the smooth, mostly acoustic midtempo "If We Don't Have Each Other." It's the testimony of a man who is reminding his woman what she means to him, and what a good thing they have together.
    Smokey is in fine voice on the single, which overcomes some muddy vocal backing harmonies with a steady groove and tasty guitar work to deliver a nice adult soul cut that radio should pick up. Check out "If We Don't Have Each Other" below, and welcome the great Smokey Robinson back to SoulTracks!

    Motown legend Smokey Robinson is set to return with his first album of all new material in over decade, and hes left absolutely nothing to the imagination with the title: Gasms.

    The silk-voiced singer-songwriter teased the LP with a new single, If We Dont Have Each Other, which finds Robinson delivering devoted lines over sultry guitar and snappy production.

    I chose this song as the first single of my new album because its different musically and has a slide dance feeling to it which is different from what Ive ever done before, Robinson said of the new tune in a statement. It also has a current rhythm of today that I love, and I hope everyone else does too.

    Gasms
    which is set to arrive April 28 is Robinsons first album of all new material since 2009s Time Flies When Youre Having Fun. And though it took him a while to reach Gasms, hes stayed busy with other projects, like his 2014 collaborative album, Smokey and Friends, which found him reimagining some of his biggest hits with the likes of Elton John, John Legend, Mary J. Blige, James Taylor, and more. In 2017, he released the holiday record, Christmas Everyday.

    I was a bit concerned about not liking this album too much on hearing "If We Don't Have Each Other", which was alright, but not my favourite song in the world.

    BUT, having checked out some of the other tracks on iTunes, Im much more contented now.
