Christmas has come all sorts of early for John Legend fans.
The Soulful crooner hasn’t released a traditional album since 2008’s ‘Evolver’ and hasn’t released a well-received LP since ‘Once Again’ in 2006. Still, for many, his debut ‘Get Lifted’ serves as his definitive “best” effort yet.
Hence, perhaps realizing this (and the fact that time and the industry wait for no one), Legend has enlisted the team responsible for ‘Lifted’ to craft his 4th studio album – the title of which he revealed today.
Details after the jump…
In a video announcement for his North American tour (dates available here), the 33 year old confirmed that the LP is titled…
‘Love In The Future’
‘Get Lifted’ producers Dave Tozer and Kanye West re-join Legend as executives on the set, which will feature ‘Caught Up’ – a Hit Boy produced cut the singer previewed in the clip. Check it out below…
Jury’s out on the song above, but we’re glad to see John back in the saddle. With Trey Songz stuck on sex and Usher and co “trying new things”, male R&B needs John – even if the masses don’t know it. Here’s hoping he delivers the good-good to remind them. *Hits ‘PLAY’ on the still-epic ‘Used To Love You’*
