Legendary Motown icon and Grammy award-winning singer-songwriter, Smokey Robinson is prepping for the release of an anticipated duets album titled, Smokey & Friends, due out this September on Verve Records. Produced by American Idol star and record producer Randy Jackson, Robinson will be joined by an all-star roster of acclaimed artists including rock legends Elton John and James Taylor, with additional artists to be announced soon.

Elton John and Smokey Robinson will duet on “The Tracks of My Tears,” one of the most celebrated songs of our time. The legendary track landed in Rolling Stone’s Top 500 Songs of All Time and was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame and into the Library of Congress.

James Taylor and Smokey Robinson will duet on the Marvin Gaye classic “Ain’t That Peculiar” which he composed and became one of Gaye’s earliest signature hits. In fact it was Gaye’s second consecutive Billboard #1 R&B Single and his second Top 10 hit on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart.
