Nearly three decades since his debut, Common returns with his 12th studio album Let Love. Inspired by his memoir Let Love Have the Last Word, which he released in May, the 11 tracks feature collaborations with Daniel Caesar, Swizz Beatz, Leon Bridges, Dwele, and Leikeli47, with production from Karriem Riggins, Samora Pinderhughes, A-Trak, and the legendary J Dilla (‘HER Love’).
Common describes the album as “Marvin Gaye meets DJ Premier meets Radiohead.”
“The book was the seed that started me in this conversation. I believe that the energy of love and the act of love, the practice of it, is the thing that we can use as individuals and as people to overcome the heaviness of the times. When I say ‘Let Love,’ I’m saying put love into practice. Allow love to be the law that we abide by.”
