New Song: John Legend – ‘We Need Love’

Published: Sunday 2nd Jun 2019 by Rashad

As he puts the final touches on his sixth studio album, the follow-up to 2016’s ‘Darkness & Light,’ EGOT winning singer-songwriter John Legend took a brief leave of absence from NBC’s ‘The Voice’ to lend his songwriting expertise to up-and-coming talents on the network’s new series, ‘Songland’ (which sees undiscovered songwriters pitch their tunes to an esteemed music industry panel).

Appearing as the inaugural episode’s celebrity guest judge (May 28), the 40-year-old revised and recorded the winner’s song, ‘We Need Love.’

“Too many brothers fallen / Too many mother cry / Too many prayers that bounce back from the sky / Too much talking, too much cheating / Too many father’s losing sleep / Too many broken heart we can’t make right,” John wails.

Before you catch the next episode of ‘Songland’ when it airs on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. EST on NBC, listen inside to Legend’s take on ‘Love’:

    This is cute, but my songs are better. I wish I had known about this.

    But I am finishing up two gamechanging demos for tgj favorite . . . so I’m hoping for a spectacular summer. I should have both demo’d out by the end of this week.
