The first single, “Under Pressure,” will be released on September 13 along with a pre-order for the album.

The album was created over the past two years, and came together during a writing camp at George Lucas‘s Skywalker Ranch in December of 2018.

The music is described as containing “elements of soul, R&B, jazz, and pop,” and “passionate as it is personal.”

“This is the sound I’ve always wanted. I went back to all of those records I lived in and thought about what made them special. I came to the conclusion it’s got to be a little bit of old and a little bit of new,” Leslie says.

He’ll also be revealing tour plans, music videos and the album title in the next coming weeks.
