As she continues the countdown to the release of new album Shadow, renowned vocalist Lizz Wright gifts fans with another taste of what’s to come on the new project. Her latest single entitled “Your Love” offers a bright take on a subject often wrought with gloom.

Co-written with Jack DeBoe, Matthew Cusson and Chris Bruce, Lizz sings of her intention to celebrate the lives and love brought by those who have passed on, as opposed to wallowing in the pain. Legendary singer, songwriter and bassist Meshell Ndegeocello and lauded harpist Brandee Younger add their signature touches to the stunning tribute as Lizz remembers the good times.

“When I think of your sweetness / The love that brought me here / All the times that I wondered / How you put away my fear,” Wright reminisces in her dulcet tone. She presses on, wishing that the one who she lost was still here, but holding on to what they left her with. “Now that you are gone away / I need your hand in mine / All day, walk around, walk around singing / All day, walk around singing / Wake me up / I’m gonna keep on moving in the rhythm of your love,” she sings.

Drawing inspiration from her late grandmother, Wright found strength and a new perspective in their final conversation. Via Facebook she shared, “The last thing my grandmother said to me in our final conversation was, ‘I love you forever and there ain’t nothing nobody can do about that. You hear me?’” She went to on to state, “As I ‎grow older, I see love as a calling more than a mood or random incident. Love is the way forward.”
