It’s been a hugely successful year for Michael Kiwanuka. The British singer-songwriter, who just turned 25, has been voted the BBC Sound of 2012, and was picked to tour with Adele. His debut album, Home Again, has received much praise from music critics, who have compared him to the likes of Bill Withers, Van Morrison and Marvin Gaye.
Home Again was released in March in the UK to great acclaim, debuting as a Top 5 best seller, and with Q Magazine calling it a “life-affirming…accomplished work of depth and distinction.”
Unlike the UK release, which included ten songs, the US version features 11, with the addition being the Dan Auerbach-produced “Lasan.” Of the song, Rolling Stone said “it’s [Michael’s] rich, ragged voice that pulls you in. He sounds like his own man, not an imitator.”
