BERLIN — BMG announced today a new global recordings partnership with platinum-selling artist, Aloe Blacc. The singer, whose distinctive vocals can be heard on the late Avicii's soaring hit "Wake Me Up," paired the announcement with the release of a Valentine's Day single, "I Do." Inspired by his decade-long marriage with Australian recording artist Maya Jupiter, 'I Do' is the first single from Blacc's upcoming fourth album, to be released later this year via BMG.
"Aloe is an exceptional artist and creative, who's got the talent to carry people away with his voice and diverse musical style," said Dominique Casimir, EVP Continental Europe Repertoire and Marketing, BMG. "We are immensely proud to release his new album and are honored that he has placed his trust in BMG."
The power ballad "I Do" sees the singer open up for the first time musically about his private life. "I wanted to create a song for Maya that was personal and universal," Aloe said. "Luck brought us together, despite living halfway across the world with a vast ocean between us. 'I Do' is the perfect representation of the profound love we share."
