John Legend is spreading the love.
The EGOT winner has announced that his new album Bigger Love will arrive on June 19, and is available for pre-order now.
He has also unveiled a video for the album’s uplifting title track, which premiered on “The Voice” last night. The feel-good clip showcases the many ways people are staying connected during quarantine and features appearances from his family as well as fans from around the world, who were asked to submit footage to be included in the video.
“This video was made to celebrate our shared love, hope and resilience,” said Legend. “We’re all using technology to stay in touch and finding creative ways to cope and we wanted the video to be a big musical hug for people around the world who are finding ways to stay connected to family, help their neighbors, and make time for a needed dance break despite the crazy circumstances we find ourselves in.”
In addition to “Bigger Love,” the album will include the previously-released singles “Actions” and “Conversations in the Dark.” The 16-track set was executive produced by Raphael Saadiq, who also produced 2018’s A Legendary Christmas.
Legend says the project, which follows 2018’s Darkness and Light, should help in the bedroom. “It’s actually probably my sexiest album to date,” he told Jimmy Fallon on “The Tonight Show” in March. “If you’re stuck at home and want to make some coronababies… if you spend a lot of time with your partner and you need a soundtrack to that.”
