Listen to a track from You’re The Man, Marvin Gaye’s scrapped album from 1972

Motown has announced the release of Marvin Gaye’s scrapped follow-up to 1971 classic What’s Going On

Listen to album track ‘My Last Chance’, mixed by Salaam Remi, below.

You’re The Man consists of Gaye’s solo and non-soundtrack recordings from 1972. While the title track to the record was originally released, Gaye eventually scrapped the rest of the project, citing that his political views ran in direct opposition to that of then-Motown CEO Berry Gordy.

Motown will now be releasing the full LP on 29th March – four days before what would have been Gaye’s 80th birthday.
