Singer, songwriter, and producer Ryan Leslie is set to make his return to music following an extended hiatus from the industry and he has a special surprise for his dedicated fanbase.
During an appearance on SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning Leslie opened up about plans to showcase his upcoming album, whose title or launch date has not yet been released, prior to its debut with a release concert in Germany on July 8.
“I figured we play the album before we drop it. So, we’re gonna play it live,” Leslie told the hosts. “I’ve had a big following for the longest time in Germany and so we’re doing an open-air festival-type conference — concert actually. It’s going to be about 3,000 folks but people are really flying in from all over the world,” he continued.
The event will be powered by the Grammy-nominated musician’s company Superphone, which aims to help creatives and businesses increase engagement, drive revenue, and build better relationships with SMS / MMS marketing. “It’s going to be great. It’s been a minute,” Leslie added.
Leslie initially announced his return last October. The “Addicted” singer’s last studio project Les is More was released back in 2012.
