Brittany Howard Shares New Song and Video, “He Loves Me”

 
Brittany Howard released “He Loves Me,” a song from her forthcoming debut solo album, Jaime. The soulful, slow-burning track – which debuted earlier today as Zane Lowe’s World Record on Apple Music’s Beats 1 – offers up a frank reflection on the unconditional nature of God’s love. While confessing she’s not a churchgoer, Howard punctuates the song with samples from a sermon by Reverend Terry K. Anderson, a Houston-based pastor she discovered on YouTube. The video was directed by Danny Clinch and shot at Sound Emporium in Nashville.

“‘He Loves Me’ is a very important track on my record. It is a song I deeply want to share to help others realize loving and being loved by God doesn’t have to look the same for everyone,” says Brittany Howard. “When my older sister passed away, it took its toll on our family. We grew apart from one another and therefore, we grew apart from our family church. I thought God had intended to hurt us or punish us, but I later realized that I found God in music and I found God in my voice. I learned that He always had a plan for myself and my family. That is what ‘He Loves Me’ is about. It is my greatest realization that He has never left me. All those years that I had turned away, I was still receiving His absolute love and forgiveness.”
 
  Rolling Stone said, “Howard’s solo debut, Jaime, is her most ambitious recording ever, full of synthed-out psychedelic funk, druggy soul ballads, hip-hop loops, and lyrics grappling with her past, including sexuality, family tragedy, religious guilt and more…It’s a powerful record.”
