Today’s Daily Feature is a very special one because it features the one and only Tito Jackson. Many will know him as the brother of the King of Pop Michael Jackson, but also a member of the legendary Jackson 5. Tito is releasing his first album in about five years, entitled Under Your Spell, on August 6th. This blues album will feature many talented and well-known artists such as George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Marlon Jackson, Eddie Levert, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush, and Stevie Wonder. I have listened to the album already and I can say it is a must-listen as it is filled with terrific songs!
One song that will be featured on this album is “Love One Another”, which was released as a single a couple of weeks ago. The song is performed by Tito Jackson, Marlon Jackson, Kenny Neal, Bobby Rush, ft. Stevie Wonder on harmonica. It is called a “perfect antidote for today’s times of doubt and trepidation.” Here is Tito Jackson himself talking about the inspiration behind “Love One Another”:
Why Should Listen to Tito Jackson’s Newest Single
“Love One Another” is an uptempo blues-rock tune that features an uplifting message, catchy melodies, and marvelous instrumentation. Of course, one would really notice Stevie Wonder’s impeccable and splendid harmonica sub melodies within the first thirty seconds. But, if you listen to the song carefully, you can hear that it that the hard rock guitar drives the song with its deep, grungy licks. But don’t forget about Tito’s vocals as they are really fitting for the song with their soulful tones that change colors throughout the song. One moment, the vocal can be light, then in another, it can be dark, thus highlighting Tito’s versatility in creating interesting vocal melodies.
