*Marvin Gaye’s “lost” 1972 album “You’re The Man” will finally be released by Motown Records on March 29.

Recorded by Gaye in 1972, the 17-song album features three tracks remixed by producer Salaam Remi, including the single “My Last Chance.”

The album was a follow-up to his 1971 LP “What’s Going On,” but only the single “You’re The Man” was released at the time. The rest of the tracks were later issued on a variety of deluxe editions and compilations, per npr.org.
