Michael Kiwanuka is pleased to share details of his new single, Light (Edit). It is lifted from the acclaimed third album, KIWAUNKA, out now on Polydor Records.
The November release of the richly textured, sonically adventurous but highly listenable KIWANUKA was greeted with acclaim from all corners of the globe. It’s a record that finds its blueprint in Michael previous record Love & Hate but pushes harder and travels further. It feels like a body of work that will be listened to for years to come, and is perhaps testament to an artist who hasn’t been rushed nor guided on his recordings beyond the watchful but encouraging eyes of dual producers Danger Mouse and Inflo. Light (edit) here is a mesmerising, psychedelic-kissed tune that showcases the musicianship and atmospherics that makes KIWANUKA such an alluring record.
A busy Summer festival schedule is already coming together nicely, including a prestigious headline slot at this year’s Green Man Festival and a second to headline slot at the Latitude Festival.
KIWANUKA is a statement record by a rare type of artist. An artist worth treasuring.
