He is one of the greatest soul singers the current music world has to offer, in 2019 he releases his new, third studio album: Michael Kiwanuka. The record is called like himself: "Kiwanuka".
Already on his first two albums, "Home Again" (2014) and "Love & Hate" (2016), the Briton turned out to be an absolutely versatile artist. He defends this reputation on his new album.
Soul, jazz, blues, folk, rock - "Kiwanuka" does not commit itself to one genre. On the contrary: it lets them melt together again and again.
Michael Kiwanuka has recorded 13 tracks for it in New York, Los Angeles and London. He was supported by none other than producer Danger Mouse, who already turned the odd knob or two on the predecessor.
