Back in March, Joe announced the launch of a new label, Plaid Take-Over, and said he’d begun recording the follow-up to last year’s DoubleBack: Evolution of R&B.  Now, he’s revealed the title of his upcoming album, Bridges, and release date for the set — June 23.

So how did he come up with the title? “We build them, cross them, burn them, then soon realize how much we need them. Relationships are bridges and at some point we must take responsibility for where we have allowed those relationships to take us,” Joe says in a statement. “Most important, what relationships or bridges are we currently building, crossing into or burning?”

The disc will be distributed by Sony RED and will include his Kelly Rowland-assisted single “Love & Sex (Part 2)” and songwriting from Derek “DOA” Allen, Edrick Miles, Gerald Isaac and Taj Jackson.
