Originally posted 06/17/2008 11:15AM

PEOPLE is giving you a sneak preview of Oscar-nominee Terrence Howard's debut album, Terrence Howard – Me and the Band of Kings, before it hits stores September 2.

The album, the actor's first foray into music, is a mix of soft pop-rock and jazzy tunes that Howard wrote (or co-wrote) about love, relationships and self reflection, and even features Howard playing the guitar on some tracks.
