Aloe Blacc, platinum-selling singer, songwriter, producer, and activist has just released his newest album, All Love Everything via BMG.
“Rather than a genre, my music is about A.I.M.: affirmation, inspiration, and motivation. After so many opportunities to talk about my music and not feel comfortable saying, ‘I’m a pop artist’ or ‘I’m a folk artist,’ I had this realization. My songwriting genre is thematic.” – Aloe Blacc
Inspired by his family, the new album is really shaped around Aloe not only as a husband but his journey as a father. The result is a heartfelt, artistic synthesis of family, activism and perseverance that beautifully traverses the tender details that makeup life and refuses to be pinned to one genre of music.
Throughout All Love Everything, Aloe exhibits the radical empathy and emotional directness that has helped firmly establish his global stardom. Whether it’s the stand-out closer “Harvard” — a heartrending storytelling song in the tradition of Joni Mitchell and Bill Withers that finds Blacc singing with disarming candor about a woman working two jobs to support her family, including a child with special needs — or the candid and percussive devotion ode “Corner”.
Aloe’s songwriting remains as affecting as ever. Drawing on an eclectic mix of soul, folk, and contemporary pop, All Love Everything proves that there’s no pigeonholing the human experience.
“Alongside prepping for his newest musical release, Aloe has been conducting some serious activism work: from police reform to mental health. Aloe also partnered with media platform Behind The Rhyme to perform and speak at this year’s Democratic National Convention pre-show alongside Barack Obama, Snoop Dogg, Rapsody, Black Thought, and Shaheem Reid.” – BMG
All Love Everything is out now and available on all streaming platforms.
