Babyface is back at it with plans to release Return of The Tender Lover, his first solo studio album in eight years.

Last year, Kenneth “Babyface” Edmond debuted Love, Marriage & Divorce with Toni Braxton, which earned the pair the Grammy for Best R&B Album. The collaboration with Braxton marked his first release in seven years, and in December, the R&B legend will drop his first solo record since 2007’s Playlist.

Return of The Tender Lover will feature eight new tracks and pay homage to his 1989 breakout album Tender Lover. “We’ve Got Love,” the lead single off Return, debuted in August.

Presale for Babyface’s 10th studio album begins Nov. 13 and Return of The Tender Lover drops Dec. 4.
