Young Fathers release new single ‘Rice’

Their new album ‘Heavy Heavy’ is out next month.

Ahead of the release of their fourth album ‘Heavy Heavy’ on 3rd February via Ninja Tune, Young Fathers are sharing their latest single ‘Rice’. ‘Heavy Heavy’ marks the trio’s first album since 2018’s ‘Cocoa Sugar’, and the upcoming record sees them embracing a “renewed back-to-basics approach, just the three of them in their basement studio, some equipment and microphones: everything always plugged in, everything always in reach.” “Heavy Heavy could be a mood, or it could describe the smoothed granite of bass that supports the sound… or it could be a nod to the natural progression of boys to grown men and the inevitable toll of living, a joyous burden, relationships, family, the natural momentum of a group that has been around long enough to witness massive changes,” the band say. “You let the demons out and deal with it,” Kayus Bankole adds. “Make sense of it after.” Revisit our interview with the band from our November 2022 issue now. ‘Heavy Heavy’ Tracklisting: 01.
