Songhoy Blues have announced plans for new album 'Résistance'.
The group won overwhelming acclaim with their breakout debut 'Music In Exile', and subsequent live shows displayed a band who revel in music.
New album 'Résistance' arrives on June 16th, a record so broad it manages to find room for both Iggy Pop and Elf Kid.
New track 'Bamako' is online now, and it's a sheer blast of positive energy. Songhoy Blues explain:
"With Bamako we just wanted to write something fun and positive about where we come from. So much of what people hear about Africa is negative, bad news stories about war and famine just dominate the common image of Africa. But this track is about dispelling that image by describing something everyone can relate to, going out on a Saturday night, to show that Africa isn't just what people see in the news, there's so much more to it than that."
Tune in now.
