Brittany Howard Shares ‘He Loves Me’
Alabama Shakes frontwoman Brittany Howard shared the single “He Loves Me” from her forthcoming debut studio album, Jaime. Howard accompanied audio of the song from the LP, which is due out on ATO Records on September 20, with video featuring a live performance of “He Loves Me.”
Brittany named the album after her late sister, who taught her about music and writing before passing away of cancer while the pair were still children. Read a statement from Howard about “He Loves Me”:
‘He Loves Me’ is a very important track on my record. It is a song I deeply want to share to help others realize loving and being loved by God doesn’t have to look the same for everyone. When my older sister passed away, it took its toll on our family. We grew apart from one another and therefore, we grew apart from our family church. I thought God had intended to hurt us or punish us, but I later realized that I found God in music and I found God in my voice. I learned that He always had a plan for myself and my family. That is what ‘He Loves Me’ is about. It is my greatest realization that He has never left me. All those years that I had turned away, I was still receiving His absolute love and forgiveness.
The live version of “He Loves Me” was recorded at Sound Emporium in Nashville and the video was directed by Danny Clinch. Brittany Howard kicks off a tour in support of the LP this Saturday in Asheville.
