The title of the group's new release is "Now, Then & Forever," the first new studio album from Earth, Wind & Fire since "Illuminations" in 2005.
"The 'Now, Then & Forever' album is really about the legacy of Earth, Wind & Fire," said longtime member Philip Bailey. "The spirit of the band has always been about uplifting the consciousness of humanity. There's a hope that this Earth, Wind & Fire music will go on forever."
Original member Verdine White, brother of Maurice White, added, "The album gave us the opportunity to tie everything together musically and culturally. Without the support of the fans around the world, the Earth, Wind & Fire journey would not have been possible."
Earth, Wind & Fire has earned eight Grammy Awards and four American Music Awards as well as the Soul Train Legend Award. They have also been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
"Now, Then & Forever" is on the Legacy label.
