Michael Kiwanuka closed out the end of the last decade with the release of the highly praised KIWANUKA (Interscope), the British singer-songwiter’s third studio album that garnered some of the best critical, fan and peer reception of his career thus far. Kiwanuka himself now ventures onto his next journey in 2020, with an 18 date sold-out North American tour at his biggest venues yet, two 2020 BRIT nominations (Best Male Solo Artist, Best Album) and debut live appearances on The Ellen Degeneres Show (Wednesday, January 22nd) and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert (February), marking the first time songs from KIWANUKA will be performed on American daytime and late night television.
KIWANUKA saw well deserved media praise from various outlets such as The New York Times, NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, The FADER, Associated Press, Vibe, HypeBeast, Magnet, INTERVIEW, Billboard,The Economist, The Nation, Flaunt, Sound Opinions, BUST, PopMatters, American Songwriter, PASTE, Relix, The Guardian Clash, GQ, NME and more, also landing spots on many best of 2019 lists. Deservedly, Kiwanuka has been shortlisted for the biggest music prize in the UK, the BRIT Awards, with nominations for Male Solo Artist and Album of the Year, alongside Harry Styles, Stormzy, Lewis Capaldi and Dave.
KIWANUKA marks Michael Kiwanuka’s third studio album and second produced by Danger Mouse and Inflo. This iteration of Kiwanuka finds him deep in the story-telling for which he’s beloved, but with a raw intimacy and shared vulnerability that resonates even more profoundly than his previous work. KIWANUKA explores themes of self-love and empowerment and the release of doubt and pain. The bold, newly found confidence echoed throughout the album is heightened visually with iconic album art, the cover an original painting by Markeidric Walker featuring Kiwanuka as the subject of reinvention, quite literally here seen in royal attire. Weaving sounds of Woodstock-era rock, Americana and early soul over orchestral strings, woozy psych beats and found audio samples, KIWANUKA creates a contemporary sonic palette that could only be orchestrated by Michael.
Kiwanuka is off to an incredible start for 2020 and the journey has only just begun – stay tuned for more news soon!
