Michael Kiwanuka Debuts Black Keys Collab, Talks Through Debut Album Track-By-Track

‘Lasan’ is the b-side to forthcoming new single ‘I’m Getting Ready’.

BBC Sound Of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka has teamed up with The Black Key’s Dan Auerbach for a brand new track, available to stream at the bottom.

‘Lasan’ is the b-side on Michael’s forthcoming new single ‘I’m Getting Ready’.

Michael Kiwanuka ran us through his debut album track-by-track in the new issue of DIY Magazine, which you can read online here.

On the new single, he had this to say:

‘No, this isn’t about getting dressed in the morning. I have a real problem of sticking things out. With anything, if you do it for so long then it will inevitably start getting difficult, and it was getting frustrating constantly giving up on things, whether it be university or playing guitar for people. So ‘I’m Getting Ready’ is about keeping on going, building on things and not dropping everything instantaneously.’

You can catch the soulful singer live on the following dates:

13 Bournemouth, Old Fire Station
14 Wolverhampton, Wulfrun Hall
15 Manchester, HMV Ritz
17 Glasgow, ABC
19 Dublin, Academy
21 Sheffield, Leadmill
22 Cambridge, Junction
23 London, O2 Shepherds Bush Empire
