Michael Kiwanuka takes us through yet another time warp with his nostalgic voice and the video for “Always Waiting.” The whole experience creates an instant longing, stirring your spirit, while also reminding us of the parallel streams that love and sadness often run in.
Available now exclusively on iTunes, Michael Kiwanuka‘s debut album, Home Again, was produced by Paul Butler from The Bees in his home studio on the Isle of Wight. A top 5 best seller in the UK, it takes Michael’s effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice and builds them into timeless and rootsy folk-inflected modern soul. The title single “Home Again” is the iTunes free Single Of The Week.
Michael will be heading to the US for a run of tour dates this June, kicking off at the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, TN, followed by shows in New York City, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Chicago for Lollapalooza, and San Francisco for Outside Lands Festival.

Two dreamy musicians have conspired to make some pleasing music they have come to call “Lasan.” The gentlemen we speak of are Michael Kiwanuka and Dan Auerbach (The Black Keys). The song is enough to make this Wednesday feel like a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Michael’s debut album, Home Again drops on March 12th in the UK.
