The Child Of Lov - "Heal" Video

It’s not easy for an artist to have a secret identity in the time of Facebook, but so far the Child Of Lov has managed to keep his given name on the DL. Of course, he has yet to release an album or physical single yet, so there’s ample time for his cover to be blown. What we do know? The artists associated with the project are insanely impressive: DOOM, Thundercat, and Damon Albarn all contribute to the Child of Lov’s forthcoming debut LP. The first single from that album, “Heal,” features a bassline courtesy of Albarn; it’s reminiscent of Blur’s “Crazy Beat,” in fact. The video for the track was filmed in Atlanta (the Child Of Love is “artistically rooted in the southern state of Georgia, USA,” per his bio) and directed Focus Creeps (Arctic Monkeys, Girls the band). Check it out.

The “Heal” single will be released 11/26 via DoubleSix.

    • It’s a good guess based on the biographical context but the music isn’t really reminiscent of Three Stacks. FWIW I don’t think it’s an established name hiding behind an alias; I think it’s a new artist with a good PR gambit. Or, if his bio is taken at face value:

      He started making music secretly at age 15, and even now in his early twenties, likes to retain some privacy – which is why he’s not releasing much information about himself. The Child of Lov has been living more or less like a recluse for the past few years, spending time in London, Paris and Amsterdam, whilst being more artistically rooted in the southern state of Georgia, USA.

      Still, not too many recluses in their early 20s are working with Damon Albarn and MF Doom so who knows.
