Kool & The Gang Releases “Perfect Union”

Kool & The Gang: Perfect UnionKool & The Gang have returned with a new album called Perfect Union. The iconic R&B band, known for their massive hits like “Jungle Boogie” and “Celebration,” bring their mix of dance music with a message of togetherness on the effort.

It was produced by founding member Ronald Khalis Bell, who passed away in 2020. His brother and bassist Ronald “Kool” Bell explains the album’s background and direction.

“My brother, Khalis, wrote the single ‘Pursuit of Happiness’ around the time of Obama’s second campaign for President,” he explains. “That was such an inspirational time and the hook and music just bolted out of him. That time period was a pretty creative period for him and all of us. Now that he has passed, that name, ‘Perfect Union’ makes even more sense to me. It’s about us. He used to say we were the koolective genius of a band called Kool & the Gang. We came together as kids and it’s been a perfect union. He knew that.”
