The album was executive produced by prolific producer-writer - and the lead vocalist of One Republic) Ryan Tedder (Beyoncé, Adele, et al), 'Legend' is suffused with an unapologetic spirit of sensuality and joy, informed by the full vulnerability of pain, praise and healing.  

The vibrant double album is split into two acts: 

ACT I recalls vividly the worldly sensual pleasures of Saturday night – full of lust, self, sex and adventure.

ACT II evokes the feeling of a Sunday morning, with its focus on healing, intimacy, soulfulness and commitment.

Legend performed “Pieces” from the new album at the 74th Primetime Emmy Award.  

Next month, he will return to Las Vegas for his critically acclaimed “Love in Las Vegas” residency.

"Legend held the full house in his hands as they danced, screamed and aah-ed their way through a generous set encompassing the multiple Grammy winner’s eight-album catalogue of hits and fan faves.” - Billboard
