G.O.O.D./Sony Urban Music/Columbia Records Announce the Release of Once Again, the New Album From Grammy-Winning Best New Artist John Legend

Available Tuesday, October 24

Legend Appearing On 'The Oprah Winfrey Show,' Today, September 21


G.O.O.D./Sony Urban Music/Columbia Records will release Once Again, the much-anticipated second solo album from the multi-platinum Grammy-winning artist John Legend, on Tuesday, October 24.

John Legend is celebrating the release of Once Again with a special appearance on "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (check your local listings) on Thursday, September 21.

Once Again is available for pre-order now at JohnLegend.com and iTunes.

Executive produced by John Legend and Kanye West, Once Again premieres 13 new John Legend songs: "Save Room," "Heaven," "Stereo," "Show Me," "Each Day Gets Better," "P.D.A. (We Just Don't Care)," "Slow Dance," "Again," "Maxine," "Where Did My Baby Go," "Maxine's Interlude," "Another Again," and "Coming Home."

Lending production support to John, who co-produced seven of the album's track, are some of the hottest talents in contemporary sounds: Will.I.Am; Kanye West; Devo Springsteen & Tom Craskey; Raphael Saadiq; Eric Hudson & Jack Splash; Craig Street; Sa-Ra Creative Partners (Om'Mas Keith, Taz Arnold & Shafiq Husayn); Dave Tozer; and Ken Lewis.

In 2004, John Legend -- then known primarily as an in-demand all-star studio session man -- stepped into the solo spotlight as a premier singer- songwriter-pianist-performer in his own right with his debut album Get Lifted. Driven in part by the hit singles "Ordinary People" and "Used To Love U," Get Lifted was a critical and commercial triumph, earning John an astounding eight Grammy nominations -- he won Best New Artist, Best Male R&B Vocal Performance ("Ordinary People") and Best R&B album -- and selling more than three million copies worldwide.
