After teasing the song earlier this week, John Legend has released his uplifting new single “Love Me Now.”

The new track – written and produced by Legend, Blake Mills (Alabama Shakes), and John Ryan (One Direction) –  is the first taste of the singer’s forthcoming album Darkness and Light. It’s a sweet, dreamy little number, as it sees Legend reverting back to his love-struck balladeer ways.

“‘Love Me Now’ is all about living and loving to the fullest, no matter what tomorrow may bring,” he said in a presser.  “I’m so excited to finally share music from my new album!  I’ve put a lot of love and energy into making this album special.  I hope my fans can feel it.”

Legend also performed the song via Facebook Live on Thursday (October 6) and spoke a bit about his forthcoming album. Watch the full session below.
