Marvin Gaye‘s never-released 1972 Tamla/Motown Album, You’re The Man, will finally come out on March 29.
In celebration of the music legend’s 80th birthday on April 2, Motown/UMe will release the album in 2LP gatefold vinyl and digital editions.
You’re The Man features all of Gaye’s solo and non-soundtrack recordings from 1972, with most of the album’s tracks making their vinyl release debuts.
Gaye did the album while he was on top of his career.
“What’s Going On,” “Mercy Mercy Me (The Ecology),” and “Inner City Blues (Make Me Wanna Holler),” the three singles from his universally acclaimed album What’s Going On, had each hit No. 1 on Billboard‘s Hot Soul Singles chart (since renamed Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs) and Top 10 Pop the year before.
