The Art Of Love

Album: Melody Road (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Some of the songs on Melody Road were started years ago, but Diamond was struggling to find the motivation to push them over the line. In 2012 he married for the third time and he told The Sun that his happiness with his new bride, Katie McNeil, fueled his work. "A song isn't really a song until it reaches completion," he said. "I finally finished 'The Art of Love' and 'Sunny Disposition,' thanks to a spark reignited by the entrance of a very special lady into my life."
