Songfacts®:

  • This is the first promotional single from Estonian electro-pop singer Kerli's second album. She explained the song's meaning in an interview with PopEater: "At first I wanted to name the album 'Weapons of Mass Creation,' and I started making the whole album very hard and army-themed, but 'The Army of Love,' when I wrote the song I saw the visual. I saw massive guns shooting beautiful stuff. I wanted to create a concept to explain that love and innocence actually are the most beautiful things. An army just sounds really violent and forceful, but we fight with love."
  • The video was filmed over several days in Estonia during early November 2010. Kaimar Kukk (Caviar Productions) directed the clip, which "sets the undertone of [her] entire new album."
