New Song: John Legend – ‘Under the Stars’

Lake and stars at night, Okanagan Highlands, Penticton, British Columbia, Canada

‘Get Lifted’ beau John Legend lifts his voice and a glass for Euro beer brand Stella Artois’ ‘Give Beautifully’ holiday campaign.

With the ballad ‘Under the Stars,’ Legend and co. incorporated sounds from actual stars (you read that right) to help fill out its instrumentation.  According to the press release sent to announce the song’s arrival, stars create unique audible tones that derive from the very frequencies that can change their levels of brightness.  Those sounds were then combined and manipulated to accompany John’s tickled ivories to produce one stirring number.

Don’t just take our word for it, hear the celestial creation below:

    Oooooo, I like this! I love the idea of using the sound of stars in the background–it’s really neat & artsy. This is a good look John! Cutting edge. ❤️

    I like John Legend but he’s becoming a very boring and middle of the road ballad singer like the intention is to become an Adele or Michael Buble. I remember when Johns music used to be exciting.
