Michael Kiwanuka’s new album Kiwanuka will be released by Polydor on November 1.
Today, he’s posted a video for the next single to be taken from it, “Hero”. Watch below:
Says Kiwanuka: “‘Hero’ is a song about how the gems of this world always seem to die young, and how those who are oppressed often seem to have the most to offer us.”
Ahead of a full tour next year, Kiwanuka will play three in-store performances later this month. Details are listed below, with tickets available here for fans who pre-order the album:
24th October – Pryzm, London for Banquet Records
27th October – Fat Sam’s, Dundee for Assai Records
28th October – Liquid Room, Edinburgh for Assai Records
