The singer recruits Pharrell, Q-Tip, Hit-Boy & More for upcoming album.
With less than a month until the release of John Legend's 'Love in the Future' (Sept. 3), the singer says his soulful album is "wrapped up" and "ready."
During a private Google+ Hangout, hosted by Definitive Technology, in conjunction with John Legend's partnership with the audio company, Legend shared with a select few (Billboard, VIBE, Stereophile, CNET, Today Show and CNN's Mario Armstrong) that he started working on his fourth studio album after promoting his collaborative album with The Roots, "Wake Up!" (2010), and finished touring alongside Sade in 2011.
Besides "Love In the Future" executive producers Kanye West and Dave Tozer, John Legend called on producers Q-Tip, Pharrell Williams, 88-Keys, Da Internz, DJ Camper and Hit-Boy. Legend and collaborators spent "a couple weeks in Hawaii to focus on the arrangements," with the intention of making "a beautiful modern soul album."
