Breakout Soul Artist Shares 19-Track Expanded Version of Acclaimed LP


To mark its first anniversary, breakout soul artist Devon Gilfillian has shared a digital-only, 19-track expanded version of his acclaimed LP, Love You Anyway. Love You Anyway (Deluxe) features the original 11-track album plus eight additional tracks including a brand-new song “Mercy,” three previously unreleased live versions and four alternate mixes of album favorites.  Listen to “Mercy”: HERE and find Love You Anyway Deluxe: HERE.


Devon Gilfillian on Love You Anyway (Deluxe) and the new single “Mercy”:

“In celebration of the 1-year anniversary of Love You Anyway, I am so excited to announce this deluxe edition which features the new single, “Mercy,” and three new live versions of some of my favorite songs from the album, “All I Really Wanna Do,” “Brown Sugar Queen (Feat. Janice),” and “Right Kind of Crazy.” These songs were my therapy, my life jacket. And it has been so humbling to see the ways these songs have spoken to people around the country and the world.

I hope you find light and love in this new deluxe edition.”


“Mercy” is a song about never giving up. In many ways, it’s the sibling to my song “Love You Anyway.” I wrote these songs during the tumult of the pandemic, when things in our country and in my life were dark, depressing, defeating. I was trying to embrace what I was feeling while also keeping perspective. This song is about reorienting that perspective, knowing light is often shining in and through our darkness.  It’s a song about embracing the struggles so that you can find joy. I had so much fun writing this with Hayley McLean. She is a true genius and

produced the perfect sonic world for this song to shine.”


Released April 2023, Gilfillian’s acclaimed Love You Anyway spans soul, hip-hop, R&B, and rock, all under the banner of Black joy. Produced by Jeremy Lutito (Joy Oladokun, NEEDTOBREATHE), the album confronts as well as comforts, chronicling Gilfillian’s journey as a Black artist living in 21st century America. The LP’s 11 original tracks (all co-written by Gilfillian), are as much about fighting for what you believe in: equity and representation, as they are about love: finding it, making it, and channeling it into every facet of our lives. Praise included People Magazine who proclaimed, “Gilfillian is also proving to be a Renaissance man, with current-chart topping influences like Steve Lacy and Kendrick Lamar and even Thundercat,” and The Tennessean who affirmed, “A must-hear sophomore album born out of his experience as a Black man in today’s America. With 11 stirring soul songs, Gilfillian offers a soundtrack to moments worth fighting for in life — love, equality and acceptance.”
