MICHAEL KIWANUKA - KIWANUKA VINYL (180G 2LP GATEFOLD)
Release Date: 1st November 2019
The British singer-songwriter brings us his third and greatest record yet, following-up his 2016's breakthrough Love & Hate. KIWANUKA is Kiwanuka's most confident and self-assured album thus far with him fine-tuning (with the help of master producers Danger Mouse and Inflo) his brilliant blend of golden-era soul and 60's psychedelica rock which feels nostalgic yet fresh and unique at the same time! One of the album of 2019 for sure!
FFO: Danger Mouse, Durand Jones, Khruangbin, Ikebe Shakedown
"Michael Kiwanuka is very pleased to announce details of his stunning third album, KIWANUKA. It is the follow-up to Michael’s number 1 album, Love & Hate, released back in July 2016 that resonated broadly both critically and in the public’s affections, netting the British musician his second Mercury Prize nomination and his second and third BRIT nominations too. Recorded in New York, LA and London, Michael returned to the studio with Danger Mouse and Inflo, the same production team that combined so magnificently on Love & Hate, KIWANUKA finds a new assuredness in Michael’s writing, and takes the basic sonic blueprint of that last record to a dizzying new realm. Introduced here with You Ain’t The Problem, Michael’s typically assured, bold, and strident vocal brims with confidence."
