John Legend readies for "Love in the Future" trek
R&B singer/songwriter John Legend has mapped out a fall North American run in support of his long-awaited fourth studio set, "Love in the Future."
The Grammy-winning musician will first complete a trio of Asian festival dates, as well as a Sept. 28 appearance at London's iTunes Festival. The North American portion gets underway nearly a month later with an Oct. 20 concert in Mashantucket, CT. That leg ventures through 21 major markets, wrapping up Dec. 1 in Los Angeles.
Legend will finally unveil "Love in the Future," his fourth studio album, Sept. 3 via Columbia Records. The performer produced the effort alongside Kanye West and Dave Tozer and will include special guests Rick Ross, Stacy Barthe and Seal on the set.
The late-summer release comes nearly five years after "Evolver," Legend's third album. The gold-certified set debuted at No. 4 on The Billboard 200 and landed at the top of the magazine's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart.
