His first original non-holiday album in four years, John Legend announced today (Wed May 13) that his seventh album will be released on June 19.  Titled  Bigger Love, the music video to the title track was released last night (May 12) on NBC’s The Voice, of which he is a judge on.  

From the press release:

“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 neighbors, and make time for a needed dance break despite the crazy circumstances we find ourselves in.”

And to make this relevant for the current times, his fans were encouraged to get involved as well, making it on to the  music video.  The video showcases personal messages, phone calls, social media video clips from the fandom, highlighting that in these times, people still can find a way to stay connected and be loved.
