From the Album
All of Me is from John Legend's fourth studio album Love in the Future (2013).
The song is a dedication to his wife Chrissy Teigen.
The song was inspired by his then fiancée Chrissy Teigen.
The couple met in 2007 on the set of his video for "Stereo". He then married her in September 14, 2013.
The song was produced by Dave Tozer and Legend himself.
"The overwhelming sensibility is one of optimism," Legend told BBC News about Teigen's
influence on the album. "She's definitely affected my songwriting."
"We were inspired by that
Hide And Seek
he added, "it's kind of this
a cappella tune going on with all the harmonizers. The robot harmonization is subtle -
we didn't want to overdo it - but it lends a little cool character to the whole thing."
