SEUN KUTI – SON OF AFROBEAT LEGEND FELA KUTI
RELEASES NEW EP – STRUGGLE SOUNDS OUT NOW
FEATURES POLITICALLY CHARGED SINGLE “GIMME MY VOTE BACK”
ON TOUR WITH LAURYN HILL THIS AUTUMN
Seun Kuti releases his new 3-song EP Struggle Sounds via Sony Music Masterworks. Co-produced by Robert Glasper, the EP features the single “Gimme My Vote Back (C.P.C.D.)” where C.P.C.D. stands for Corporate Public Control Department.
The son of the late Nigerian Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti, Seun recorded the EP with Egypt 80, his father’s original band. Written by Seun, the three songs on the album “Stuggle Sounds,” “Gimme My Vote Back (C.P.C.D.),” and “African Dreams” have strong social and political messages – a theme that Seun weaves into all of this music.
“More than even we are convinced of our mission and the purpose of our music,” says Seun. “The Struggle Sounds EP is a true reflection of my social and political beliefs. I give honor to my parents and every revolutionary who made this possible even before I was born.”
This November Seun Kuti & Egypt 80 will open on tour for Lauryn Hill. He will headline his own tour – details forthcoming.
