The highly anticipated track, off his upcoming album Darkness and Light, is about living in the moment while in a relationship.

"I don't know who's gonna kiss you when I'm gone / So I'm gonna love you now like it's all I have," he sings in the chorus. “I know it'll kill me when it's over / I don't wanna think about it, I want you to love me now.”

"The music is really, really good," the Grammy winner promised during a recent Facebook Live while discussing his upcoming album. "I think it's my best work yet."

Darkness and Light, which follows his 2013 album Love in the Future, will feature performers such as Chance the Rapper, Brittany Howard, Miguel, Blake Mills and saxophonist Kamasi Washington.

Legend most recently collaborated on tracks with Meghan Trainor and Kelly Clarkson in 2015.

He has yet to announce a release date for the upcoming album. Listen to "Love Me Now" above.
