Soul veteran Lee Fields will release his next album, Faithful Man, on March 13th. The bluesy "You're The Kind of Girl," Faithful Man's lead single, pays homage to the traditional soul music that put Fields on the map. Lee describes "You're The Kind of Girl" as "a song that honors women because they should be honored. When a person meets that special someone, everything is easy from that point. True love is not a hard thing. When you meet the right person, it just happens."

Random Notes

Fields thinks that "You're The Kind of Girl" needs to be played for the special person in your life. "To everyone out there in search of that special someone, or who wants to tell their special someone what they mean to them, play that song," he says. "You know what I'm trying to say? Don't say nothing 'cause you might talk yourself out of it," Fields suggests. "Just let the song play and leave it at that."

Faithful Man won't be available until March 13th, but you can download "You're The Kind of Girl" for free here.

Song Stories


Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
