Morris Day and The Time: Video, Doc, Live Plans


The Original 7ven (the band formerly known as The Time) will debut their new funk-fueled hit, "#Trendin," on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on October 27. Watch the official video for the single below.

The performance on Leno, their first television appearance as the Original 7ven, comes just a week after their album, Condensate, is released on October 17 amidst concert and promotional appearances that include a show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on October 19, the theatrical debut of their documentary at the Grammy Museum on October 18th, interviews on CNN, the Tom Joyner Show, Yahoo! Music, Vibe magazine's Lifestyle Network, in USA Today and many more.

In early December, the Original 7ven will spend a "Takeover Weekend" at BET's Centric network, with videos, special programming and exclusive interviews devoted to the music and the history of the band. Centric reaches over 44 million homes nationwide.

Condensate marks the first time the seven musicians have recorded together in over 21 years. Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jellybean Johnson, Jerome Benton and Monte Moir deliver exciting funk/rock/pop that drove the launch of the Minneapolis Sound, infused with a new energy and power.

After their two-week promotional run on the West Coast, the Original 7ven will travel to their hometown of Minneapolis for a special "homecoming" concert, before heading to New York for a number of additional appearances to be announced in the coming weeks. Details will be posted on
