Electro-tribal percussion permeates John Legend‘s sensual new single, Made To Love,” another solid offering from the R&B crooner’s upcoming fourth studio album, Love in the Future.

Featuring additional scatting and cooing from Kimbra, the New Zealand-born songstress who accompanied Gotye on his 2012 hit Somebody That I Used To Know,” his words passionately echo “I was sent for you / We were made to love / You were to sent for me too / We were made to love.”

The first verse continues, “Oh… I’ve never seen anything / You’re much more than human being / Extraordinary machine / Oh… I never loved, I never loved, never loved someone like this / All I know is…”

Reminiscent of Kanye West‘s KiD CuDi-assisted “Welcome To Heartbreak” from his 2008 808s & Heartbreak set, “Made To Love” was produced by Da Internz, Dave Tozer, Nana Kwabena, and Ye, who is co-executive producing the LP and is very involved in its process.

Further collaborations for Love in the Future include Hit-Boy, Q-Tip, 88 Keys, and No ID.

The album, described by John as “modern classic soul,” is preceded by singles The Beginning and Who Do We Think We Are,” featuring Rick Ross.

Though the official tracklisting has not yet been revealed (and I’m still hoping it includes Dream), the album is due July 25, 2013.
