Common just announced that his Let Love album will arrive August 30th and now he issues an official music video for the Swizz Beatz-assisted song “Hercules.”
The song follows the Chicago legend’s recent effort “HER Love” with Daniel Caesar and Dwele.
“This album is inspired by the book Let Love Have the last Word, which gave me a path to write about things I had never written about before,” explains Common. “It forced me to go deeper and because I opened up about so many things in the book, I was charged to go to raw, personal and spiritual places in the music. Production-wise, I knew that the music had to have depth, soul and dimension to it. I wanted the musicianship and the spirit of what live music brings, but it also had to have something raw and basement about it.”
The 11-track project will also feature guest appearances by Samora Pinderhughes, Leikeli47, BJ The Chicago Kid, Jill Scott, Leon Bridges, and more.
