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.

If this guy’s voice were a person, we would hold its hand and potentially never let go.

On the heels of his Home Again EP, Michael Kiwanuka just released a video of a live session at BBC’s Maida Vale Studios. The song? A cover of Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love” complete with some super sick sitar action. Man, is this guy dreamy. Killing it.

This guy is bananas. Sounding like a cross between Bill Withers and Terry Callier, Michael Kiwanuka will be opening up for Adele on her U.S. tour. The North London singer-songwriter of Ugandan heritage is a diamond, with vocals that warm your earbuds and subsequently send chills up and down your whole body.

Above is an acoustic video for “I’m Getting Ready,” which was released a couple weeks ago and it’s beautifully soothing. And below, you must absolutely check out the immaculately produced, richly sung instant classic “Tell Me A Tale” (we hear a little Marvin in there).

The I’m Getting Ready EP will be available September 18th. Yes, please.
