Earth, Wind & Fire - Now, Then & Forever [2CD Deluxe Edition] (2013)

Now, Then & Forever is the 20th studio album by Earth, Wind & Fire, released on September 10, 2013, by Legacy Recordings, a division of Sony Music. This is the first Earth, Wind & Fire album without musical input from founder Maurice White, although he supplied liner notes. Larry Dunn, another founding member, joined the production team on this album lending his signature style as the keyboardist for several tracks. The first release from the album was "Guiding Lights" which premiered in 2012. In 2013, the second single "My Promise" was released. Band members say that this album is a return to the old Earth, Wind & Fire sound and formula while mixing in some new innovations as well. ~Wikipedia~
