ChesnuTT, known for his energetic live show, has also announced a string of tour dates across Europe and a highly anticipated return to London’s Bush Hall on 8th June.

Cody saw critical praise as well as swathes of excitement from fans when he dropped his neo-soul single featuring Raquel Saadiq ‘Bullets in the Street and Blood’ and the energetic ‘I Stay Ready’ via Noisey towards the end of 2016The two tracks are a call to arms for positivity in the face of adversity.

Talking about the new album, Cody said: “In a time of global economic uncertainty, it is an uplifting charge to use one’s natural talents and gifts of creativity to forge ahead positively into purpose and economic well being.

“This Body of work is medicine for me. Once again, this is my soul trusting the powerful gift of music to be a positive vehicle for sharing the continual process of personal transformation. This organic sound recording explores what commonly may be perceived as universal social complexities, with the thought of divine love, and its application, as a simplifying guiding light. Artfully demonstrating that deeper listening, love and a greater sense of humanity is still the way forward to a healthier and more fruitful human experience.”

The 13 tracks that make My Love Divine Degree were recorded and mixed over a span of 18 months, and inspired by daily observations, both internal and external, taking shape in the form of various rhythms and soundscapes, ranging from classic soul to modern synth experimentation.

Wearing his poetic license on his skin like a battle scar, Cody’s third full-length album, ‘My Love Divine Degree’ has been produced by Anthony “The Twilight Tone” Khan, a BMI Award winning, Grammynominated producer, songwriter, and DJ known for his work with Kanye WestCommonJohn Legend, and Pusha T.

The album continues to present us with his ruminations on life that challenge popular notions of what popular soul music can look and sound like. Consistently ground-breaking, Cody ChesnuTT has once again created a body of work that is steadfastly topical and progressive, whilst at its heart incredibly human.
