Currently on tour with Alicia Keys, Ne-Yo recently found out that his third album with Def Jam has been pushed back. Scheduled for June 24th, Year Of The Gentleman has been pushed back to August 5th and will feature production from Christopher "Tricky" Stewart, Stargate, and J.R. Rotem.
To keep fans while his album is being made, Ne-Yo recently started a new blog that can be found on www.yearofthegentleman.com "I wanted the third album to be something a little different from the first and second as far as the essence and the sound of what I was doing," Ne-Yo said. The first single from the album, "Closer," was produced by Stargate and is currently No. 54 on the Billboard Hot 100 and No. 41 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
