Nothing like John Legend’s latest tune to start your weekend off right!

The singer-songwriter just released his highly anticipated new single “Love Me Now,” off his forthcoming album Darkness and Light, late Thursday night after serenading fans with its passionate lyrics for the first time during a Facebook Live performance.

“‘Love Me Now’ is all about living and loving to the fullest, no matter what tomorrow may bring,” Legend says in a statement about his new track. “I’m so excited to finally share music from my new album!”

He continues: “I’ve put a lot of love and energy into making this album special. I hope my fans can feel it.”

And speaking of “loving to the fullest,” Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, are the epitome of #relationship goals. They clearly adore one another, and support each other every moment of the day—especially when there’s new music involved.

The supermodel/TV personality/cookbook author shared an Instagram post offering some serious encouragement for her hubby and his latest song.

“#Pressplay! John’s new single “love me now” is streaming live on johnlegend.com!! And he will be performing live from our house on facebook live at 10:30 eastern/7:30 pacific! I’ll be in a robe, drinking a margarita. Tune in!” she captioned the social media video.

Although Darkness and Light doesn’t have a release date yet, Legend assured fans on Facebook Live that the album will be coming shortly. “The music is really, really good,” he said. “I think it’s my best work yet.”
