Sauti Sol staying in quarantine to work on new album – Graphic Online

In January Kenyan band Sauti Sol signed a recording deal with Universal Music Group, the group was working on releasing their new album, Midnight Train, when the Covid-19 pandemic disrupted our lives.

The four band members felt they had to stay together so they decided to all get tested for Covid-19, luckily the results were negative.

For a month now, the band, along with their crew, have been staying in a house on the outskirts of the capital, Nairobi, rehearsing and working on the launch of their album, as well as writing new material.

They plan to perform the Midnight Train album live very soon and stream the concert. Negotiations with platforms and media partners are ongoing.

The album is packed with songs exploring different themes.

Sober, for example, addresses alcohol addiction, Insecure describes a couple crippled by anxiety, and Suzanna is about a young woman who has used skin lightening products and had cosmetic surgery.

The album also features collaborations with Sho Madjozi and Black Motion, India Arie, The Soweto Gospel Choir, Mortimer and Bensoul, Xenia, Nviiri the Storyteller and Okello Max.

Midnight Train was released on 5 June.
