RESPECT. Interview: Trevor Jackson Talks Debut Album ‘Love Language’ + Starring In New Film w/ Morgan Freeman + More
Trevor Jackson released his long-awaited debut album, ‘The Love Language’ on March 26 via EMPIRE/Born Art.
The Love Language is Trevor’s most mature, poignant project to date. The 14-track LP embodies the singer’s insights and past experiences in love including everything from the thrills of desire to the uncertainty and disconnection of lust. The album is led by the hit singles “Just Friends” and “Get To You”, which Jackson recently released a suspenseful and murderous video for. The production on the album includes Jackson himself, Harvey Mason Jr. (Michael Jackson, Mary J. Blige, Aretha Franklin), and Ayo & Keyz (Cardi B, Ty Dolla Sign, Jaden Smith) to name a few.
The debut release delivers an unforgettable message that truly resonates—we need more love. “Love is the universal language of all things and I hope this album gives people more confidence to understand their own love languages and how to communicate them. The power of this music will not only bring people together, but it’ll also bring people closer to themselves,” says Jackson.
Alongside the release of The Love Language, the grown-ish co-star is excited to announce that he is set to star in Revelation Entertainment’s new film Hate To See You Go alongside legendary actors Morgan Freeman, Alfre Woodard, Common and Bill Burr. The film will be directed by Oscar Award Winning Director, Ben Tishler and follows the story of an aging Chicago Blues musician who refuses to retire.
