John Legend has unveiled the title track from his forthcoming album Bigger Love.
Written by John along with Ryan Tedder, Zach Skelton and Cautious Clay, ‘Bigger Love’ is an uplifting release from the artist which reminds us all of the many forms of love in the world.
Laced with a tropical vibe, ‘Bigger Love’ is a much needed anthem in the world, particularly during the current climate. Speaking about the track, John said: “This song is a celebration of love, resilience and hope.
“I wrote it last year, before any of us could have imagined what 2020 would become. The message of the song is that love can help carry us through these dark times and music can bring us joy and inspiration. I hope it brings some light to people’s day and maybe inspires a dance break!”
