Denise Kaufman of Ace of Cups explains, “On our upcoming album, ‘Made for Love’ is the second half of a two-song medley. We decided to excerpt ‘Made for Love’ as a separate release, because we wanted to offer this message into the world right now. We had finished recording our new album at Laughing Tiger Studio in Marin County just two days before the Covid lockdown began and all the band members headed to our respective homes to shelter-in-place. At this moment, maybe more than ever, ‘Made for Love’ is a reminder from the Ace of Cups that we, ALL the people, didn’t come here for hate, greed and war. Every single one of us was made for love.”
For the song’s video, the Ace of Cups collaborated with renowned dancer/choreographer Stacey Printz, director of San Francisco’s Printz Dance Project. Printz and her dancers had just returned from a residency at The Kennedy Center when Covid-19 took over and cancelled their spring season dance schedule. Printz reached out to her dancers-in-lockdown and gave them prompts for dance sequences for the video. ‘Made for Love’ also showcases friends, family and fans sharing photos and clips of love in their lives.
