Paul Stanley makes it clear, his R&B combo Soul Station is not some rock star’s pet project — but a true labor of love. Coming on March 5th is the group’s first album, Now And Then. Soul Station has played sold-out club dates in the U.S. and Japan, with the debut album featuring 14 tracks — five originals and nine classic covers.

Among the covers included are the debut cover single of the Five Stairsteps‘ “O-o-h Child,” the Temptations‘ “Just My Imagination (Running Away With Me),” the Delfonics‘ “La-La (Means I Love You),” and a pair of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles evergreens — “Tracks Of My Tears” and “Ooh Baby Baby.”
