Diana Ross has announced details of her new album Thank You – her first in 15 years.

Thank You is the follow-up to Ross's 2006 album I Love You, and was recorded entirely in her home studio during the pandemic.

“This collection of songs is my gift to you with appreciation and love,” said the former Supremes singer in a statement.

“I am eternally grateful that I had the opportunity to record this glorious music at this time”.

The title track, released at midnight on Thursday, is a shimmering gospel-pop song that recalls the star's Motown years – with a noticeable hat tip to Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell‘s “You're All I Need To Get By.”

A press release said the album “offers a powerful, inclusive musical message of love and togetherness” and that “with its songs of happiness, appreciation, and joy, it wholeheartedly acknowledges that we are in this all together”.

Ross co-wrote all of the 13 tracks, working with a variety of contemporary pop producers – including Jack Antonoff, who has become a key collaborator for female artists like Taylor Swift, Lana Del Rey, St Vincent and Lorde.

Ross co-wrote the 13 songs on Thank You with collaborators including Antonoff, Jimmy Napes (Mary J Blige, Alicia Keys, Sam Smith), Tayla Parx (Ariana Grande, Demi Lovato) and Spike Stent (Björk, Madonna), and recorded the album in her home studio.

Due for release in September, it will be Ross's 25th solo studio album – and her 43rd overall.
