Lemar has released the video for his new single ‘Future Love’, an infectious 80s funk-inspired song that he released recently.
The video features TikTok star Sonna Rele and you can watch it at the top of this article. ‘Future Love’ is taken from Lemar’s upcoming album ‘Page In My Heart’, which is his first new material in 11 years. The album will be released via AMP on 24th March 2023.
Lemar recently performed ‘Future Love’ with the BBC Concert Orchestra for BBC Radio 2’s Piano Room, alongside his No.2 hit ‘Dance (With U)’, and a cover of Michael Kiwanuka’s ‘Cold Little Heart’
Lemar says: “With this new album, I wanted to make something for anyone who ever bought ‘Dedicated’, as this year is 20 years since its release. I thought I’d like to make something for the people who got behind that album, something that they would appreciate and like. That’s really reflected in the first single ‘Future Love’. It’s more uptempo, it’s got that soulful feel, it’s a bit looser, a bit Chaka Khan. A bit ‘Dance (With U)’… it’s got that kind of energy to it.”
Lemar will celebrate two decades of music and the 20th anniversary of ‘Dedicated’ live with two special nights in Manchester and London on the 27th and 28th of April. Tickets are available here and at www.ticketmaster.co.uk.
