Seal is back with a new album of soul music. His upcoming album, “Soul 2” (out January 24), picks up where his previous album, “Soul,” left off, with reinterpretations of iconic R&B songs like Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me,” and Teddy Pendergrass’s “Love T.K.O.”

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes video, Seal talks about recording “I’ll Be Around” by The Spinners. “If you were to ask me why I recorded that song I just have to be brutally honest and say it’s just so pop-tastic,” he says.
