One of the most distinctive voices in British music is back with Michael Kiwanuka sharing his new single Money, a collaboration with South London musician Tom Misch.
Polydor marketing manager Helen Fleming says, “The collaboration will be the soundtrack to your summer with its upbeat guitar, disco beat and Michael’s undeniable vocals.”
Over the past few months, Kiwanuka has been sharing glimpses of his return to the studio to work on the follow up to 2016’s Love & Hate – which achieved both his first number one album and his first BRIT Award nomination.
The music’s profile has arguably got even higher since then, thanks two syncs: Cold Little Heart became the theme tune for Big Little Lies while Love & Hate features on the hit Netflix series When They See Us.
Michael returns to the stage next week at the Tramshed in Cardiff, a tiny warm-up show ahead of his evening Park Stage slot at Glastonbury June 28. The festival appearances continue throughout the summer with his first festival headline performance at End of the Road on August 30.
Michael will also play some headline US gigs in September – include a stop in New York on September 25.
