Lenny Kravitz Producing New Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 Album

Check out an in-the-studio clip...

Lenny Kravitz is set to executive produce the new album from Seun Kuti & Egypt 80.

The afrobeat guru has created four album with Egypt 80, a righteous musical force comprised of some of the best musicians around. The most recent album from Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 arrived in 2018, but a new one is seemingly on the way.

The group have signed to Italy-based imprint Record Kicks, with sessions taking place at Question de Son studio in Paris. Experienced producer Sodi Marciszewer has been contributing, while rock icon Lenny Kravitz is executive producing the sessions.

The final results will be released in October, and it’s a tantalising crossover.

Seun Kuti has been in collaborative mode of late, working with Black Thought on the ‘African Dreams’ EP, and contributing on two tracks from Janelle Monae‘s ‘The Age of Pleasure’.

A full in-the-studio clip is online now, showing Seun Kuti, Lenny Kravitz and Sodi Marciszewer in action.

Seun Kuti & Egypt 80’s new album will be released on October 4th.
