"We started with a pure love for music, so to be here 20 years later still doing what we love has been a pure blessing," bandmember Wanya Morris explains. "Hearing it all come together at Marsh Mastering has been really cool. It's a great little quaint studio. I could have stayed there forever with Steph—he made it a great experience."
Nathan Morris adds, "It was exciting to be in the studio again with the guys who have been a part of some of our biggest hits to date. It's a really good feeling."
The album's new material will be the group's first in 10 years. The trio has worked with a number of high-profile producers on the project, including Terry Riley, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, Tim & Bob, and Babyface. Mix engineers include Ray Bardani, Jean-Marie Horvat, Jon Gass, and Steve Hodge.
Boyz II Men have sold more than 60 million albums worldwide to date.
