VIDEO OF THE WEEK:
"BLACK MAN IN A WHITE WORLD"
3/30/16


It's a good day when you've got Queen of the Songstresses Adele singing your praises, so Michael Kiwanuka must be feeling pretty damn good this hump day.

"Black Man in a White World" is a STRONG record, and the fact that it was executive produced by Danger Mouse certainly doesn't hurt. The track is gripping and, frankly, quite beautiful. Take a listen above.

Kiwanuka—whose 2012 debut LP, Home Again, was nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize—is signed to Polydor in the U.K.
