John Legend isn't going to let 2016 pass on by without focusing on his bread and butter. Just last week, the R&B singer appeared at AXE's Find Your Magic launch event in New York City in affiliation with his involvement in a mentorship program for aspiring creative heads, and revealed some news regarding the follow-up to 2013's Love in the Future

"[I'm] just in the studio working on my album. That's the main focus, and working with some really talented musicians and hopefully we'll make something beautiful," Legend told MTV News.

We're sure that making some beautiful music won't be that hard, considering "All Of Me" was basically 2013's unofficial wedding song of the year. Whether or not he cranks out another tear-jerking ballad remains up in the air, but we'll be able to hear tunes for the LP as early as third quarter. 

"I think I'll be finished in the next couple months and then I’ll probably put it out either summer [or] early fall," he said. "It will be this year for sure."

Thankfully, John is also currently producing new music for his 10-episode TV series, Underground, which premieres on March 9 on WGN, so expect the new tunes to flow in sooner rather than later.
