Universal Motown Records recording artist KEM will release his third album, Intimacy this July. The new CD is the Detroit native’s long awaited follow-up to his critically acclaimed and certified gold 2005 disc, KEM Album II.

Inspired by his deeply personal lessons, Intimacy will allow fans to experience him like never before.  Fans can expect a musically, lyrically and visually connected artist as he gives them an up close and personal 10 song collection of timeless music for grown ups.  

Intimacy features vocal and production collaborations with the likes of Grammy-winning soul diva Jill Scott and the late Motown legend David J. Van dePitt,producer of Marvin Gaye’s hit, What’s Going On.

Scott delivers enchanting verses of spoken word in “Golden Days,” while Van dePitt arranged the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s string section on the first single, a gorgeous ballad called “Why Would You Stay.” Los Angeles producer Rex Rideout (Luther Vandross, Angie Stone) also joined KEM in the studio to help round out the Intimacy listening experience.

In 2002 the self taught musician won fans over with smooth grooves, powerful vocals, heartfelt lyrics, and just plain feel-good music best. His first album, Kemistry spawned the hit single “Love Calls.”

With the release of Intimacy, Kem gives fans a deeper understanding of the true meaning of intimacy, but it also helped him achieve a greater appreciation for the significance of intimacy in all aspects of his life beyond romantic relationships.
