New John Legend album runs musical gamut

NEW YORK, Aug. 17 (UPI) -- Singer John Legend's upcoming new album will feature a variety of musical styles, Rolling Stone reported in New York.

The set will have tracks influenced by '60s AM radio pop songs as well as fellow singer Jeff Buckley, the magazine said, produced by artists such as Kanye West and Craig Street.

Legend told the magazine of his experiences with musical icon Stevie Wonder, including an incident in which he says he became ill after ingesting a secret concoction Wonder uses to maintain his own singing voice.

Rolling Stone said that when the 26-year-old's "Once Again" album is released later this year, his fans will still appreciate his trademark piano-based mellow soul -- but will be surprised by the album's musical diversity.
