Kae Sun Returns with 'Afriyie,' Unveils New Single
A press release explains that the 10-song set further develops Sun's sound, which mixes elements of folk, soul and reggae with the artist's "insightful and inspired poetry."
"I've settled into a sound and vocal delivery that feels very true to me," Sun said in a statement of his current work. Influences on the LP are said to include Sam Cooke, Lauryn Hill, Bob Dylan, Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and Ben Harper.
While Sun teased the release last fall with first single "Ship and the Globe," he's now offering up a second sneak peek with a video for the LP's change-striving pop-rock anthem "When the Pot," which you can stream down below.
Tour dates behind Afriyie are apparently in the works, but details on the trip have yet to be delivered. Sun will, however, play the CBC Music Festival at Toronto's Echo Beach on May 25 alongside Of Monsters and Men, Kathleen Edwards, the Sam Roberts Band and more.
