April 1, 1984, the day the world stood still. Today, Marvin Gaye would have been 80 years old. In commemoration of Marvin’s birthday, Motown has released Marvin’s lost 1972 album “You’re the Man”. It was the follow-up to Marvin’s ‘What’s Going On’. The album features 15 songs that, until now, had never before been released. The 17-song collection includes music from the original album, as well as some of Gaye’s additional work from that period, featuring mixes from producer Salaam Remi. “You’re The Man” is available NOW on streaming services and on a double-vinyl LP. Enjoy the sounds of the “Prince of Soul”.

Also in honor of Marvin’s legacy, USPS has released postal stamps embedded with his portrait and a brief biography on the stamp pane. The “Prince of Soul” Forever Postage Stamp is apart of the U.S. Postal Service’s 2019 Music Icons collection.
