10-time Grammy Award winner John Legend has just released his highly anticipated album Darkness and Light.
Produced by Blake Mills, the album is Legend's fifth in studio and features collaborations with Brittany Howard (Alabama Shakes), Chance the Rapper, and Miguel.
"Darkness and Light is John Legend's manifesto," Mills said. "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."
Written and produced by Legend with Mills and John Ryan, the album's popular single "Love Me Now" is a beautiful tribute to love in all of its forms. "'Love Me Now' is all about living and loving to the fullest, no matter what tomorrow may bring," Legend said about the song. "I'm so excited to finally share music from my new album! I've put a lot of love and energy into making this album special. I hope my fans can feel it."
