John Legend, ‘Love in the Future’: Fall Music Preview 2013
Release Date: Sept. 3
Label: G.O.O.D. Music/Columbia
“I wanted to make a great modern soul album.” That’s how impending groom John Legend boiled down his new album to Billboard while taping a Chevrolet commercial tying in the set’s Kanye West-produced second single, “Made to Love.” Also joining Legend and West in the executive producer’s seat is Dave Tozer, another longtime creative ally. In addition to “Made to Love” (featuring Kimbra), "Love in the Future" resonates through standouts like “All of Me,” “Hold On Longer” and “Angel,” a tasty, too-short interlude with Stacy Barthe. Providing foreplay is first single “Who Do We Think We Are” (featuring Rick Ross). Legend’s headlining tour begins Oct. 20.
