In the years since Aloe Blacc's last album, The Grammy
nominated ''Lift Your Spirit'', the global superstar
spent time working on an even dearer project: his
family. All Love Everything, his upcoming album, is the
singer-songwriter's first collection of material written
as a father, a journey that's expanded Blacc's already
heartfelt artistic palette. ''Becoming a father made me
want to share those experiences in music,'' he says,
admitting it's a challenge to translate such a powerful
thing into lyrics and melody. But the listeners who have
followed Blacc over the course of his career know that
his facility with language and sound is deep - if anyone
was up to the task, it's him.
Across three albums, his sound evolved and grew,
finding a pocket that reflects the long and beautiful
history of American soul with timeless, descriptive
songwriting that speaks to the broad range of human
experience, from platonic love to love for humanity, from
politics to aspiration. Versatile and compassionate,
his songwriting is classic in a way that makes
categorization irrelevant; indeed, Blacc's lyrics have
been paired with dance music and country - always to
stirring effect. Aloe Blacc isn't defined by genre.
''Rather than a genre, my music follows a theme I call
A.I.M.: affirmation, inspiration, and motivation,'' he
explains. Beloved hits like ''I Need a Dollar,'' ''The Man,''
and ''Wake Me Up,'' (over 1.5 billlion global streams)
with Avicii, may not fall under the same musical
umbrella, but they're united by how they make the
listener feel. That's Blacc's wheelhouse, the place where
he excels. ''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.
