‘Kiwanuka’ was recorded in New York, LA and London. Michael returned to the studio with Danger Mouse and Inflo, the same production team that combined so magnificently on Love & Hate, 'Kiwanuka' finds a new assuredness in Michael’s writing, and takes the basic sonic blueprint of that last record to a dizzying new realm.
Michael will tell you of his love for records that entwine their songs with incidental skits and shape-shifting spiralling outros, so the listener experience is almost that of listening to one long, dramatic song. 'Kiwanuka' fulfils that winding, dream-like haze, unhurried.
'Kiwanuka' is Michael serving from the heart, from the mind, and from the soul.
