John Legend has announced that he will release his new album, ‘Bigger Love’, on 19 Jun. He’s also released the video for the title track, directed by Mishka Kornai.

The video stitches together clips sent in my fans showing how they are connecting with loved ones online throughout lockdown and dancing to the song.

“This video was made to celebrate our shared love, hope and resilience”, says Legend. “We’re all using technology to stay in touch and finding creative ways to cope and we wanted the video to be a big musical hug for people around the world who are finding ways to stay connected to family, help their neighbours, and make time for a needed dance break despite the crazy circumstances we find ourselves in”.

This Saturday, John Legend will also play the first in a new series of virtual reality shows hosted by MelodyVR. Taking place in a specially built, socially distanced studio, the ‘Live In LA’ series will also have performances by Machine Gun Kelly, Katelyn Tarver and The Score.
