Young Fathers Announce New Album ‘White Men Are Black Men Too’

Young Fathers White Men Are Black Too
G’ Hastings, Alloysious Massaquoi and Kayus Bankole of Young Fathers follow last years Mercury Prize-winning album DEAD with the announcement of sophomore album White Men Are Black Men Too. Set for release on April 7th via Big Data, the 12-track album was written while on tour last year and mastered in their studio in Edinburgh.

They’ve released the first song “Rain Or Shine” already as well, which the band asks “you wanted to hear The Monks jamming with Can and the Commodores, right? And then The Last Poets jumping in on the end before it gets too late? And a paranoid prophet, wandering a post-apocalyptic desert, talking to himself? Served with fries…””
