Ahead of the release of album ‘Egoli’ in July, Africa Express have unveiled new track ‘Become The Tiger’.
The song features Damon Albarn, Mr Jukes and Cape Town-based electronic artist Sibot, who says: “Mr Jukes and I had this infectious groove going. People would pop their heads in, those heads would start bobbing and the room grew crowded. This beat was special. Damon made a turn, he pushed through the jammed door and straight for the mic. I hit record like a panic button.
Damon jumped on a bed and started making up words. He somehow arrived at ‘become the tiger’… We all started chanting it. I kicked everyone out so I could quickly capture the idea. Silly and spontaneous. The best kind!”
