Ce Ce Winans Returns With New Album, “Let Them Fall In Love”
Multiplatinum-selling artist Cece Winans returns with a vibrant, soul-stirring ten-track solo album ‘Let Them Fall In Love,’ out tomorrow (2.3). After an almost decade-long hiatus, Cece went back into studio with her son and co-producer Alvin Love III to continue the Winans’ family’s “ever-evolving musical tradition” (NPR Morning Edition). The ten-time Grammy winner will perform on Austin City Limits this Saturday (2.4) and on BET’s Super Bowl Gospel Celebration, Sunday, Feb. 5.
Co-produced by Alvin Love III and Cece’s longtime collaborator Tommy Sims (Garth Brooks, Michael McDonald, Bonnie Raitt), ‘Let Them Fall In Love’ is a diversion from Cece’s earlier work and channels the Detroit-born singer’s soulful influence of Four Tops, Andrae Crouch and others. Mixed by Dae Bennett (Tony Bennett, Amy Whinehouse, Olivia Newton John) and Jimmy Douglass (Pharrell Williams, Micheal Buble), the album was recorded in both New York and Nashville and flaunts big band horns and strings from the Nashville String Machine. Vocal powerhouses The Clark Sisters also join Winans on the standout track “Hey Devil!”
Ce Ce Winans and her son Alvin recently spoke with NPR about the album where her son shared how he began his proposal of a new album for his mother…
“I want to create something that’s relevant, that’s totally you, but yet something that’s totally different than anything you’re ever done before.” – Alvin Winans, Jr.
Ce Ce has been spending most of her time the last 5 years Co-Pastoring mostly millennials along with her husband Alvin Winans, Sr. in Nashville, TN. Because her focus was mainly on ministry, it took some convincing to take a chance on a new album with such a new feel for her. But, once her son made the vision clear, and let her hear the live symphony orchestra that would be involved, Ce Ce was on all in! Just as her son envisioned, the album is an eclectic mix of music styles that showcases the many facets of CeCe’s vocals. The album includes does include the classic ballad and serene sounds that we’re used to from CeCe, but it also includes other genre styles including Pop, R&B, Jazz and more! Just as Ce Ce has been known to do in her past albums, she has stepped outside of the box once again with this one! …and we love her even more for it!
