The legendary singer took to her Instagram on May 21, to share the cover art and release date for “Mother Nature,” as well as thank the guest artists on the forthcoming LP. Angélique revealed the album is a love letter to Mother Earth. She wrote;

 “I am so proud to announce my new album, “Mother Nature” coming June 18th. This album is a love letter to Mother Earth and all the values we hold dear: truth, trust, love, connection. If there’s anything the pandemic has taught us, it’s that we are all a part of the same ecosystem—this planet is all we have. I am very grateful to have so many guests joining me of the album: @YemiAlade, @burnaboygram, @mreazi, @salifkeitaofficial, @shungudzo , @sampa_the_great, @ghettoboygh, @EARTHGANG, @zeynababibofficial1@m_chedid@lionelloueke and many more! I am also thrilled this morning to share a new song, “Africa, One Of A Kind” featuring Mr. Eazi and Salif Keita. You can check out the song/music video and pre-order the album at the link in the bio.”
