The Vampire Diaries star Kat Graham will be releasing her second album on June 2, 2017. Titled Love Music Funk Magic, the upcoming album’s first single, “Sometimes,” will drop on March 31st. The new songs were co-written by Graham who also co-produced Love Music Funk Magic, working with acclaimed producers and songwriters Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, Prince, and Jean-Yves “Jeeve” Ducornet.
Graham’s new album is a blend of rhythmic rock and R&B. The first single was co-written by Kenny “Babyface Edmonds” and is described as a “funk-felt pop-felt jam.”
“My vision was to create an album that sonically was a tribute to great musicianship. A work of art that honors real live sound…bringing it back to the ’70s,” stated Graham. “Love Music Funk Magic is a creative space with no labels. The opportunity to work with the incredibly talented Babyface, Prince and Jeeve was inspiring and truly humbling.”
Graham’s been keeping busy with multiple projects in addition to finishing up her role as Bonnie on the final season of The CW’s The Vampire Diaries. She appeared at SXSW where she performed her new music at the Nylon and Billboard parties. Graham also recently completed work on the comedy film Where’s the Money with Terry Crews and All Eyez on Me, the Tupac Shakur biopic in which she plays Jada Pinkett.
