So, what is Seal up to now? Is he still making music? Will fans ever get a new Seal album? Here are the facts.

8 He Rose To Prominence In The 1990s

For those who don’t know, Seal is a soul and R&B singer who became a household name in 1996 when his track “Kiss From A Rose,” became a sensational hit.

6 He Only Wants To Make Singles Now

Well, the reason we have yet to receive another Seal album is because Seal does not want to make more albums. However, he does still want to make music. According to an interview in Billboard magazine, Seal wants to record and release singles from now on, not full albums. Seal maintains that this method of writing and recording will give him more freedom as an artist and will put less pressure on him as an artist. It is easier to record and release one song at a time than it is to do the same with ten or more songs, as most record companies demand. But if this style of recording gives him more freedom, why is he taking so long to record something?

5 He Collaborated With Claptone In 2021

Well, he did record something, quite recently to. While fans are still waiting for Seal to drop his next track, there are still plenty of songs they can enjoy. The latest single with Seal attached came out in 2021, and it was a collaboration with Claptone called “Just A Ghost.” However, Seal was only a featured artist on the song, not the lead singer. The song peaked at number 11 on the Billboard charts.

4 He’s Been Making Appearances On The Masked Singer

Seal has been slow to make new music, but as said before he has still been busy. He was a vocal coach on The Voice Australia for three seasons before parting with the show in 2014, but returned in 2017. He was also in season two of The Masked Singer as The Leopard and he made a guest appearance on the third season of Masked Singer France.

2 Seal Has Yet To Announce His Next Single

Sorry to disappoint any Seal fans reading this hoping to learn when he will release his next single, but no one knows when that might be. Seal has yet to announce his next project or what he is currently working on. However, Seal does tend to take his time when it comes to recording. Most of his albums were recorded between 2 to 4 years apart from each other, on average. Sometimes fans had to wait as long as five years for a new Seal track. Fans shouldn’t be too worried, Seal just likes to take his time.
