Boyz II Men to Release Album of Doo Wop Music

Celebrating over 25 years in show business, four-time Grammy Award-winning R&B vocal group Boyz II Men return with their latest album Under the Streetlight (Sony Masterworks) available October 20. A tribute to the classic, harmony-driven sound that inspired the iconic R&B trio, Under the Streetlight features a personal selection of timeless songs chosen by founding member Nathan Morris, tenor Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris, plus one original song - all with a Boyz II Men twist.

"Growing up and experiencing doo-wop music definitely influenced Boyz II Men's sound," said Nathan Morris of Boyz II Men. "Under the Streetlight has been a passion project that we've wanted to create for a while to bring us back to our roots and make the music that inspired us when we first started the group."

On Under the Streetlight, Boyz II Men put their spin on classics such as "Why Do Fools Fall in Love," (Frankie Lymon & The Teenagers), "Stay" (Maurice Williams & the Zodiacs) and "I Only Have Eyes for You" (The Flamingos) along with an original composition, "Ladies Man."

The album also features three guest vocalists who join the trio: Multi-platinum R&B artist Brian McKnight on "I'll Come Running Back To You," "Tears On My Pillow," and "A Sunday Kind Of Love"; Olivier Award Winner Amber Riley (Glee, London's Dreamgirls) on "Anyone Who Knows What Love Is"; and ten-time Grammy winners Take Six join the trio on "A Thousand Miles Away."

Fresh off their sold-out tour with New Kids on the Block and Paula Abdul, fans can catch the best-selling R&B group during their ongoing residency at the famed Mirage in Las Vegas and on their global tour.

With over 64 million albums sold, the four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning musical sensation is an iconic R&B group with hits such as "I'll Make Love To You" and "End of the Road." For two and a half decades, Boyz II Men have given fans a rich catalog of hits and number one albums that have withstood the test of time. In 2012, Boyz II Men was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. With a long list of accolades, Boyz II Men has been featured on some of today's hottest TV shows from FOX's "Grease Live" to ABC's "The Bachelorette" and "Dancing with the Stars" to CBS' "The Odd Couple." Their rise to success is a dream come true made possible by hard work, a brotherly bond and an unimaginable talent and desire to continue improving their live performances, harmonious recordings and musical journey.
