Check out a new song from Earth Wind and Fire in advance of the new Legacy Recordings collection Now, Then and Forever. “Guiding Lights,” to be included in the set, provides a taste of what’s to come from a promised 2012 studio album — the band’s first since 2005.

Over 23 releases so far, Earth Wind and Fire has notched eight double-platinum Top 10 pop albums — and eight No. 1 R&B singles. In all, EWF has also earned 20 Grammy Awards nominations, winning six as a group. Founding members Maurice White and Philip Bailey have claimed two each, as well.

[SOMETHING ELSE! FEATURED ARTIST: We back track to some classic Earth Wind and Fire favorites, including “I’ll Write A Song for You,” “Can’t Hide Love” and “That’s the Way of the World.”]

Now, Then and Forever, due in May, includes favorite tracks hand-picked by celebrity friends and fans — including Andre 3000, Lenny Kravitz, Pharrell, Raphael Saadiq, will.i.am and David Foster, among others.

Earth Wind and Fire, a member of both the Rock and Roll and Vocal Group halls of fame, has sold more than 90 million albums worldwide — making them America’s seventh top-selling musical group ever.
