(November 4, 2016) Acclaimed, multi-platinum selling, Oscar, Golden Globe and 10x Grammy Award winning singer/songwriter John Legend’s highly-anticipated new album DARKNESS AND LIGHT will be released on December 2nd via Columbia Records. The album, produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes), is available for preorder now and features his current anthemic hit “Love Me Now.” A Target-exclusive version of the album is also available and includes three special bonus tracks. See full tracklisting below.
Legend previewed a snippet of the official video for “Love Me Now” this morning on Good Morning America - watch below. The track was written and produced by John Legend with Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and John Ryan (One Direction).
“DARKNESS AND LIGHT is John Legend’s manifesto. Following the tradition of Soul/R&B music that celebrates love and challenges indecency, DARKNESS AND LIGHT digs into John's long-standing devotion to social justice, the challenges and rewards of a marriage constantly in the public eye and the recent birth of his first child, Luna. This record goes against the grain, boldly reminding us that though darkness is abound, it is the light that will ultimately push us forward.”
