Michael Kiwanuka Delivers New EP

Cherrytree/Interscope Records have released a new digital EP from British soul singer Michael Kiwanuka.

The three-song EP, 'Home Again,' will only be available digitally in the US. For full track-listing, see below.

Following Michael's introduction in 2011 with the 'Tell Me A Tale' and 'I'm Getting Ready' EPs through Communion Records, 'Home Again' heralds another fine glimpse into this unique, British voice for 2012.

Michael recently sold out headlining shows in both Los Angeles and New York City following a run of supporting dates with Adele in the UK and Europe. Born and raised in North London by Ugandan immigrants, Michael's '60s soul and introspective lyrics are drawing comparisons to Otis Redding, Bill Withers and Marvin Gaye. Time Out NY called his two New York shows the best events in entertainment that week, and The LA Times deemed Michael "underrated," noting: "What grabs you first is that voice, a delicately sandpapered, yearning instrument that recalls Bill Withers over a shuffling, breezy funk rhythm. Once the Afrobeat horns and "What's Going On?"-era strings come in, you're hooked and ready to hear more."

Paul Butler from The Bees produced the EP in his home studio on the Isle Of Wight. The partnership takes Michael's effortless melodies, observant lyrics and smooth voice and builds them into timeless and rootsy folk-inflected modern soul recordings. Borrowing musicians on the Isle where necessary, the majority of the instrumentation on the record is shared between Michael and Paul.

The release of Michael's debut album, also titled Home Again, is planned for later in 2012 could well be the year that this captivating young artist turns into a household name.

Tracklisting:
1. Home Again
