‘Love & Hate’, Michael Kiwanuka’s stunning 2nd album was released late last year, four years since his debut, and boy how things have changed.
Kiwanuka has come back with a fire and anger that translates into dramatic and powerful music, oozing with soul and thought provoking lyrics about being a black man in this day and age. With legendary producer Dangermouse at the helm, the album is next level.
Live, this translates into an emotional and passionate experience. Kiwanuka’s band is augmented with backing singers, percussion, keys, guitars, everything to add to the lush sound of the album. Kiwanuka himself is as passionate as ever, with a scepticism to the current turbulent times and delivers it with strength and compassion.
Michael Kiwanuka comes to town on 3rd May at Colston Hall and tickets are sold out.
