April 22, 2015

Listen to Saul Williams’ new single, ‘Burundi’. The single features Emily Kokal of Warpaint, and is the first release from Williams’ upcoming album ‘MartyrLoserKing’. The Niggy Tardust mastermind states, “Burundi is one of the 1st songs I recorded for MartyrLoserKing. I initially recorded it in Paris after returning from a month of travel thru Senegal, Swaziland & South Africa. I focused on [the country] Burundi as I was studying the coltan trade & black market networks. Also because of the role of the drum/tambour in Burundi & how those drums became the backbeat for new wave” Check out the single below (plus, dates for Saul Williams’ Martyr Loser Kingdom Tour) .
