John Legend headlined "Good Morning America" Summer Concert Series at New York City's Central Park on Friday morning, June 21. In addition to performing his hit single, "Tonight (Best You Ever Had)", the R&B crooner treated the crowd with "Made to Love", a new song off his upcoming album, "Love in the Future".
"I'm excited. It has been a while since I put a solo album out. It was time for some new music, so we're ready to go," Legend told host Robin Roberts. He then explained how his fiancee, Chrissy Teigen, influenced his music, saying, "I'm about to get married, so I just wanted to sing songs that reflect my life."
During the interview, the nine-time Grammy Award winner also announced dates for his "Made to Love" tour. He told fans to check out his Facebook page for more details. The tour will kick off in New York on October 21 and wrap up in Phoenix next December.
Legend's "Love in the Future" is set to drop on September 3. For the follow-up to 2008's "Evolver", Legend has worked with the likes of Kanye West, Dave Tozer, Malay, 88 Keys, Rick Ross, Stacy Barthe and Kimbra.
"It sounds like a lot of cooks in the kitchen, but the main cooks were [me, West and Tozer]," he recently said of his new album. "We made something I think really presents where I am in my life right now."
"Lyrically, the title kind of embraces where I'm heading in life, I'm about to get married. It's the beginning of something new, I'm optimistic about it, and you can hear that in the tone of the tracks. I wanted to make a really great modern soul album," he added.
