At exactly midnight, John Legend’s fifth studio album Darkness and Light was made available to purchase and stream.
Serving as the follow up to 2013’s Love on the Air, the highly anticipated 12-track album boasts features from Miguel, Chance The Rapper, & Britney Howard (of the Alabama Shakes). This album takes us back to the soulful days of Stevie Wonder and Marvin Gaye, spreading love while also commenting on the current social climate.
In a recent interview, the album’s producer, Blake Mills, called Darkness and Light “John Legend’s manifesto,” and added it was bout Legend’s “long-standing devotion to social justice, the challenges and rewards of a marriage constantly in the public eye and the recent birth of his first child, Luna.”
