I am completely smitten right now, and as is often the case, it’s because some song has tickled my soul and earned a permanent home in my increasingly unmanageable music collection. Aloe Blacc has gone and released my newest favorite song, “Love Is The Answer.” It succeeds at making me want to start a Soul Train line, and contemplate the problems that ail the world at the same time. A somewhat unlikely combination, yes, but with the help of the man who is having a seriously good year, Pharrell Williams, it totally works. With Aloe’s commitment to lyrical depth and Pharrell’s addictive groove, this is an unexpected smash that deserves to be played over and over again. Don’t be surprised if you break out singing Bill Withers‘ “Lovely Day” because this song will take you there. Though opinions may differ, this has to be crowned the stand out of Aloe’s new four-track Wake Me Up EP, which is available now through your favorite digital retailer. If you enjoy musical moments that give you goosebumps, hit the bounce to watch Blacc’s unfiltered acoustic rendition of “Wake Me Up,” his international hit with Avicii.
