The Child of Lov 'Give Me'

We're starting our year with a banger with the release of The Child of Lov's new single Give Me. It's the second track to be aired from the forthcoming debut album, which features contributions from DOOM, Thundercat and Damon Albarn. As with the video for his debut single, Heal, the accompanying video was filmed in the rural south of Georgia, USA by our favourite video directors Focus Creeps.

You can purchase Give Me digitally through iTunes right now, which comes backed with a remix from collaborator Two Inch Punch.

Since the release of Heal in November 2012, awareness of The Child of Lov has grown considerably, particularly in the UK where he has featured in many tastemakers’ tips for 2013. Much of his identity still remains ambiguous however, whilst he, in his own words, ‘lets the music stand on its own’. Give Me captures the muggy grooves of the rural south while casting a nostalgic nod to the ideas and inventions of southern trailblazers like Little Richard, Otis Redding and James Brown. As with his first single, The Child of Lov has drawn from a spectral cast of such R&B musicians to lay down an obsessionally tight groove, leaving him to sing his way towards one of the most undeniably catchy choruses you’ll hear this year.
