Meshell Ndegeocello has announced her new album of cover songs Ventriloquism today. The album, out March 16, features versions of songs by TLC, Janet Jackson, Tina Turner and more. In anticipation, she has released the album track “Tender Love” (Force MDs).

Meshell Ndegeocello tells Rolling Stone about Tender Love: “Tender Love always felt like a timeless and beloved song. People love it across generations, which I really love about it. I was listening to Neil Young’s Harvest around then and it seemed right to update one classic by filtering it through another.”

A portion of the profits from this album will be donated to the American Civil Liberties Union.
