NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 8, 2012) - Atlantic Recording artist Tank celebrates the release of his new album, "THIS IS HOW I FEEL," which arrives in stores and online today. The album -- which is the R&B veteran's fifth studio collection -- features the singles "Compliments (feat. T.I. & Kris Stephens)" as well as "Lonely," a collaboration with fellow R&B star Chris Brown. "THIS IS HOW I FEEL" also features a collaboration with rapper Busta Rhymes, as well as production from the likes of Troy Taylor, T-Minus, Kevin McCall and even Tank himself. Adding to this excitement, Tank ushered in his new album with a performance of his single, "Next Breath," on this morning's episode of The Wendy Williams Show (check local listings). Tank is set to celebrate the release of "THIS IS HOW I FEEL," with a headlining performance at ATL Live on May 15th.
This July, Tank will head to New Orleans to take the stage at the 2012 Essence Music Festival, which also features performances from Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin, Keyshia Cole, Fantasia, Charlie Wilson and more. This marks the second consecutive year that Tank will take part in the three day festival, which celebrates contemporary African American music and culture.

"THIS IS HOW I FEEL" is the follow-up to Tank's 2010 Atlantic Records debut, "NOW OR NEVER," which featured the lead singles, "Emergency" and "Sex Music," as well as collaborations with Chris Brown ("Foreplay") and Drake ("Celebration"). Adding this already impressive list, Tank's collaboration on Chris Brown's "Take My Time" earned him a nomination at last year's Grammy Awards in the "Best R&B Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals" category, which joined his 8 career nominations that he had to date. In addition to his own music, Tank has contributed vocals and helped pen hit records for the likes of Jamie Foxx, Keri Hilson and Chris Brown.
