John Legend will release his new album Darkness and Light on 2nd December 2016 through Columbia Records.
The album is produced by Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and is available for pre-order now. It features his current single Love Me Now which was written and produced by John with Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes) and John Ryan (One Direction).
The music video for Love Me Now was teased this morning on Good Morning America.
Darkness and Light features collaborations with Chance the Rapper, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, and Miguel.
Talking about the record producer Blake Mills says, “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.”
The track list for the album is:
1. I Know Better
2. Penthouse Floor (feat. Chance the Rapper)
3. Darkness and Light (feat. Brittany Howard)
4. Overload (feat. Miguel)
5. Love Me Now
