Rick James Lives On

Published: 2007-01-18
Stone City Records will be releasing the material that Rick James was working on before his death. James died in 2004 but up until the end he was hard at work on his next release. The yet to be titled album will be released this May.

The CD was originally supposed to be sent to stores August 2005 by Sanctuary Records. James' business manager, Ron Kramer, told Billboard, "This is one he really wanted out. He really didn't want anybody else on these songs. He wanted to prove himself again. He wanted people to enjoy him; his music."

His new single "Deep Still" will be released late January. After the release we will be hearing lots of talk about the deceased singer. The autobiography which he wrote while imprisoned at Folsom Prison from 1993-1995, "Memoirs of a Superfreak" will be published this April. Also there are talks of a film to be produced on the life and times of Rick James.
