Music Feeds Podcast Episode #37 – John Legend

Written by Greg Moskovitch on November 6, 2013

As he prepares to embark on a run of US tour dates, we caught up with R&B star John Legend, who chatted to us with bags packed from his New York City apartment, for the latest installment of the Music Feeds Podcast, about his upcoming Australian tour and his new album.

John tells us that while he visits Down Under regularly, he hasn’t managed to come down for extensive tours as much as he’d like to. Though he’ll soon be undertaking an extensive Australian tour with fellow R&B singer Alicia Keys, which kicks off this December at the Perth Arena.

We also discussed John’s latest album, Love In The Future released back in August, a marked shift from previous albums such as Wake Up!, his 2010 collaboration with The Roots. John explained that his albums represent different sides of him, with Love In The Future focusing on his romantic side.

John also talks about his love for Twitter as a medium for fan feedback and his hopes that his album will offer some hope to fans who may be concerned that R&B is “slipping away” in favour of electro and electro-pop, making a conscious decision to make Love In The Future pure R&B.

You can check out the full interview as well as the dates of John’s recently announced headlining shows, below.
