SEUN KUTI 3

LAGOS JUNE 24TH (NEWSRANGERS)-Knitting Factory Management’s SEUN KUTI & EGYPT 80 will debut two brand-new songs from their upcoming album that were recorded live at Clout Studio—the legendary premises of Cool FM 96.9 on Victoria Island in Lagos. The tracks, titled “Love and Revolution” and “Emi Aluta,” will be released by The Orchard on Friday, June 24th, and will be available on Apple Music, Spotify, and Soundcloud.

For the first time in years, legendary Afrobeat artist and Kuti family scion Seun Kuti is relentlessly touring the globe with an ongoing European and US tour, concluding with a performance at the tenth annual Desert Daze on September 30. The tour includes stops at major festivals like Glastonbury and unique venues along the way, traversing the UK, Italy, Morocco, Switzerland, the Netherlands, France, and America. Shows will include classic anthems and songs from their catalogue—including the most recent Grammy-nominated album Black Times—alongside new material.

While on tour, Seun visited BBC 6’s The First Time with Matt Everitt for a wide-ranging interview and live performance that will be available here on Sunday, July 3rd at 1:00PM BST. He also recently sat down for interviews with Fusicology (available here) and The Desert Sun (available here on Sunday, June 26th). The youngest son of visionary Fela Kuti, Seun discusses the continued tradition of fusing music and politics into something transcendent and revolutionary, in every sense of the word.

With a weekly radio show, mythical gigs at The New Afrika Shrine, and a righteous social media presence, Seun is revered in Nigeria and worldwide. We hope you’ll agree that he is an international figure—the standard-bearer for the Afrobeat movement—worthy of your attention. Please contact us for an advance listen.
