K’Naan yesterday released his new album, Country, God or the Girl, boasting a diverse sound fusing pop, soul, and reggae with K’Naan’s famously catchy lyricism. Topic matter spans the gamut from politics and society, relationships and loneliness, and mental attitude.
To go with the release, Rolling Stone featured K’Naan in a video where he offers a track by track breakdown behind each song – we’d surely like to get inside the man’s head! Watch above. A new track called “Gold in Timbuktu” is also now available for streaming. Starting out like a lullaby, the song builds into a telling personal reflection. Listen below.
