Earth, Wind & Fire have reimagined their classic hit, "Can't Hide Love," alongside Babyface and Lucky Daye.

On Friday (August 20), the iconic collective dropped the three-minute offering, which has been retitled "You Want My Love," and it hears Daye delivering a topline vocal that adds his own twist to the track, while maintaining the essence of the 1976 original. 2021 marks the 45th anniversary of the single, which was initially released on the studio side of their double-live LP, Gratitude, in 1975. "I am super hyped about this all-star collaboration – Earth, Wind & Fire, Lucky Daye, and Kenny 'Babyface' Edmonds producing. It was an honor to join forces with these two superstars, and I truly believe we've created a winner all the way," the band’s Philip Bailey said in a statement.

To capitalize on the momentum, Earth, Wind & Fire will perform the track in New York City on Saturday as part of the WE LOVE NYC: The Homecoming Concert. They'll be joined by Daye and Babyface for the performance. The set will air live worldwide on CNN, CNN International, CNN en Español, and unauthenticated on CNNGo beginning at 5 PM ET.
