NEW YORK, Sept. 5 (UPI) -- The Grammy Award-winning U.S. vocal group Boyz II Men said its first major label release in five years will be out this fall.

"American Idol" judge and music industry icon Randy Jackson produced the Decca CD, "Motown: A Journey Through Hitsville USA," which is set to drop Nov. 13.

"The mixture of the classic Motown sound and today's R&B soul is what makes this album truly unique," Jackson said in a statement.

Highlights on the disc include Motown favorites such as, "Just My Imagination," "Ain't Nothin' Like The Real Thing," "Mercy Mercy Me," "Tracks of My Tears" and "Got to Be There."

Also included will be a cappella versions of Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon in the Sky" and the group’s own, "End of the Road."

"We wanted to pay tribute to an era that had such a major influence on our sound," said Boyz member Shawn Stockman.

"Everything on this record was recorded with all live instruments and working with Randy we were able to capture the feel, vibe and energy of these classic songs," said Wanya Morris.

"This was pure fun," added Nate Morris.
