John Legend releases the official visuals to the song Surefire. 

John Legend’s recent single, ‘Surefire’, perfectly captures crucial messages of love and hope, its simple melody complimenting Legend’s smooth vocals. If you only listen to a few songs from Darkness and Light, you need to make this one of them.

The romance that permeates this song is obvious in Legend’s voice, but it seems natural rather than idealised, only enhancing the beauty of it. Yet, when he sings ‘Know I won’t let the blue flame die / We can’t lose hope just yet’ an idea of universal hope is communicated, fitting with the rest of the album and the current political climate. The gospel backing really fuels the soulful energy, especially in the pre-chorus after the second verse, making this track likely to give you the chills.
