Blacc, whose distinctive vocals can be heard on the late Avicii‘s soaring hit “Wake Me Up,” paired the announcement with the release of a Valentine’s Daysingle, “I Do.” 

Inspired by his decade-long marriage to Australian recording artist Maya Jupiter, “I Do” is the first single from Blacc’s upcoming fourth album, to be released later this year via BMG.

“Aloe is an exceptional artist and creative, who’s got the talent to carry people away with his voice and diverse musical style,” said Dominique Casimir, EVP Continental Europe Repertoire and Marketing, BMG. “We are immensely proud to release his new album and are honored that he has placed his trust in BMG.”

The power ballad “I Do” sees the singer open up for the first time musically about his private life. “I wanted to create a song for Maya that was personal and universal,” Aloe said. “Luck brought us together, despite living halfway across the world with a vast ocean between us. ‘I Do’ is the perfect representation of the profound love we share.”

To mark their anniversary, Blacc surprised his wife with a renewal of their vows ceremony, which will be seen in behind-the-scenes cuts for his music video.

Blacc released his debut solo album Shine Through in 2006 and follow-up Good Things in 2010. Boosted by the global chart success of breakthrough hit “I Need a Dollar” – the theme song to HBO‘s How To Make It In America – Good Thingsreached gold sales status in several global markets. His third album, Lift Your Spirit, debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200albums chart, earning a Grammy Award nomination for best R&B album.

Aside from his solo projects, Blacc is widely known for his collaborations with the late Avicii (born Tim Bergling), co-writing and performing vocals on 2013’s “Wake Me Up” and on 2019’s “SOS,” the first single following Bergling’s passing.
