The Very Best - Warm Heart of Africa

Excepting a few incidental collaborations, this daily blog has never featured the same artist twice, but this song is just too good to pass on the chance to show it to you. After their introductory mixtape last winter, Radioclit and Esau Mwamwaya, aka The Very Best, have tentatively scheduled their full-length debut Warm Heart of Africa to release in autumn.

The title track, “Warm Heart of Africa” features Mwamwaya and Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig in a sunbaked, sand-dancing track that feels like sweltering sunshine, captured and gently shoved into my ears. This is the first taste of what is sure to be a monumental album of African pop music.
