Seal (yes the guy who brought us a hit single called Crazy long before Gnarls Barkley), has a new album coming out in a month, and the first single actually recaptures some of the unique blend of techno, pop, rock and soul that his very first and most successful album did.

The single, ‘Amazing’ is more upbeat than ‘Crazy’ but bears some resemblance to his first hit single. Sixteen years later the sound has a modern edge, but retains the rich orchestration and production qualities. The Album will be called System, and is due out on November 13th.

Seal is also doing a one-time only charity performance to benefit autism research through the Autism Speaks. In a unique twist, the December 18th performance will be paired with interpretive ice skating performance from past champion ice skaters including Olympic Gold Medalists Kristi Yamaguchi and Brian Boitano, six-time U.S. champion and World champion Todd Eldredge, and three-time U.S. champion and two-time World bronze medalist Michael Weiss.
