Today sees the release of Pan-Fried – a brand new video INSERT VIDEO HYPER LINK from Kano – taken from the hotly anticipated forthcoming LP Hoodies All Summer. Out 30th August on Parlophone.
Shot last week in East London and directed by Taichi Kimura, the video perfectly illustrates Pan-Fried – a song about celebration in spite of dire circumstance – and the warmth and positivity of the community it represents. The track contrasts summery beats with a furious, dark undertow and also features a guest turn from the rapidly ascendant British artist Kojo Funds. Listen here
Hoodies All Summer is the sixth studio album from Kano, and his first release since 2016’s acclaimed Mercury-nominated ‘Made In The Manor’. Produced by Blue May and Jodi Milliner, the 10-track album sees Kano explore a more minimal – yet still uniquely British – sound which brings his lyrical prowess to the fore.
This autumn will also see Kano make his much anticipated return to the stage, accompanied by a full live band, with a head line tour kicking off in Glasgow on 2nd October, ahead of a sold out hometown show at London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall on 7th October.
The full list of UK tour dates is:
2 October GLASGOW – The Old Fruitmarket
4 October MANCHESTER – The Albert Hall
5 October BIRMINGHAM – Town Hall
6 October BRIGHTON – Brighton Dome
7 October LONDON – Royal Albert Hall
Hoodies All Summer will be available on CD, double vinyl and digital download. Pre order here.
