The War And Treaty, Tanya Blount-Trotter and Michael Trotter Jr., released the single, “Take Me In.” The song will land on the husband and wife duo’s forthcoming album, Hearts Town.

The War & Treaty announced Hearts Town in July and shared the single “Five More Minutes.” The duo spoke to Garden & Gun, who previewed “Take Me In,” about the new single. Read what Michael had to say about the track below:

So many times we find ourselves yearning for acceptance. We put on a tough skin when we don’t get it. We say, “I don’t need anybody,” but that’s just a bitter response to rejection. So let’s cut the facade, drop the attitude, and be honest: Say, “I need love. Won’t somebody please take me in?” That is a pivotal question in our time. Whether it’s the LGBTQ community, whether it’s the African American community talking to the fathers of this country, whether it’s the people who are overweight, wanting to be accepted—take me in. Not just when I hit the home run, but take me in when I fail, too. Tell me it’s okay. Tell me it’s all right.

“You cannot take someone in without the absence of judgement,” Tanya added. “That is the highest level of acceptance, to look at a person with no judgement there. You see the soul. You see through them. It’s an opportunity to love. That’s what ‘Take Me In’ is all about.”

The War & Treaty also confimed they will support John Legend on his rescheduled 2021 summer tour.
